Day Before Birthday Party Activities....

 Annabel's friends in first grade came to her class to singing happy birthday and to share in her special day. They all made their own special cards with messages to her. I guess when you have children that are in regular classes they can experience friends writing them note, or saying "you are my best friend, etc. Tears came to my eyes when each one read their own cards and explained their drawings. It warms my heart so much to know that each and every day Annabel's story and life touch so many of all ages... If she could talk I know she would want to thank each one of her friends for sharing in her birthday celebration! 
 Her birthday cards from Ms. Newton's class and Mrs. Eaves....

 One day shy of 7 years old...
 How she has missed her Rebekah!!! (Hint: look at Rebekah tummy in following picture)
Look closely and you will see her baby bump! She was having some problems and won't be able to lift Annabel for awhile. Annabel is trying to accommodate since Annabel has lost almost 4 pounds in the last 2 weeks. We all want her to give birth to a healthy baby but we all sure miss her! We thank her for coming to school to spend Annabel's birthday with her.

I will be adding more pictures of Annabel's kindergarten class, Ms. Eaves is the teacher. Annabel goes to their class two mornings a week and shares in circle time, music and socialization. We are so happy that she is allowed to take part in the regular classes and that all the kids loves her and are so sweet to her.

Also to Ms. Ann, Ms. Lisa and Ms. Alice who are the teachers in Annabel own class. They love her and take such good care of her. To say they accommodate her every need is an understatement. It would break my heart to think Annabel could not experience all that she does each and every day. We love all of you for loving Annabel and never ceasing to pray for her.
