Last week was Catholic Schools Week for the parochial schools in our city, when the schools plan fun events all week long to highlight our faith and what it means to live that faith each day. I'm a proud graduate of Christ the King, so I well remember Catholic Schools Week!
One of the schools in town, Blessed Sacrament, planned a Spirit Day for one of their events, and they decided to dedicate the Spirit Day to Brenna. I've been told that one of the 5th grade classes has even been following my blog and discussing Brenna's progress in religion class - shoutout to Mrs. Morehead's class! What an amazing feeling knowing that Brenna's story is reaching all of these children.
My best friend Kristin, who as I've mentioned before is also Brenna's godmother, has cousins that attend BSS, so she went to the Spirit Day activities...and the next day, she brought me a HUGE bag of letters from each and every one of those students, who not only wrote notes of encouragement to Brenna, but also to Connor. So cool! I was so moved by this that during the following couple of days, I read every single letter.
What sweet notes we received! Some of the classes went with a theme - such as Valentine's Day cards, or a big poster signed by all of the kindergartners. Others were so thoughtful as to include some of Connor's favorite Disney characters.
Connor (in his Woody PJs, no less!) with a card with drawings of Buzz Lightyear and Woody
The Lion King - so cool!
One of the classes decorated pictures of Buzz...
And let's not forget the star of the show...Brenna Girl enjoyed reading her letters too!
Kristin took some video at the all-school assembly, which I LOVED getting to see. Here are a few clips for your enjoyment. Yea Team Brenna!
Brenna has her own message in response to all of the love and prayers :)
Thank you so much to all of the students, staff, faculty, parents and community supporters at Blessed Sacrament for your outpouring of love for our family!
