The highlight of this week has been teacher appreciation: Cheetah's school sent home a flyer with an example (for each day) of a happy for the teacher's, I took this as a challenge. I decided that he could not just arrive to school with: a flower on Monday, chocolate on Tuesday, 'thank you' notes on Wednesday, fruit on Thursday, and a prepared item for the snack table on Friday. I racked my brain and came up with some 'twists' to brighten their Appreciation week.
Tuesday: Chocolate (thanks a 'million')
Wednesday: Thank You "notes"
Friday: for the snack table
Also on Friday we have 'Muffins with Mom' and I have found that there really is no meal that compares to a dry packaged muffin, orange juice from a styrofoam cup, and the giddy smile from Cheetah.
I have a cousin, named Peter, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and had a stem cell transplant this week. Please keep Peter and his family in your thoughts and prayers. He has a tricky road ahead and I know he would appreciate any extra prayers, as do I.
