Choose to Dance

Today was a beautiful day with Julia.

I had the honor of introducing her to about 200 people at my school (about 2/3 of my 8th grade students and several staff members). The Camelot House at Oltman Middle School is preparing for a service project for the Children's Hospitals of Minnesota. In a few weeks, they will be making blankets, craft kits, and much more to donate to children and their families who are staying in the hospital. The purpose of my presentation today was to share the stories of 3 different families who have experienced the journey of pediatric cancer. Julia came to school with me this morning to share her story through a video we put together. As an added perk, she ate lunch with me in the teacher's lounge!
