A wish come true....and a freebie

YAY!!! It's Friday and a 3 day weekend, which means lots of time with my little guy.  I am so fortunate to have him in my life and I was reminded again yesterday how precious his life really is. My nephew, who is 2 1/2 also has had quite a struggle in his short life. He was born in end stage kidney failure and was in need of  a transplant. My younger sister- his aunt- was a perfect match and when Matthew was 15 months old she donated her kidney and through prayers and lots of love, she saved his life.  The past 2 years have been rough for my older sister's family that not only includes Matthew, but her four other children as well, and I pray each night for them.  A few months ago, Matthew was visited by the Make a Wish Foundation. They asked Matthew if he could have a any wish come true, what would he wish for. In true 2 year old fashion, he said "I go to Mickey's house!" Well just the other day, the below proclamation came in the mail for Matthew.  

Through the generosity of those who donated to the Make a Wish Foundation, Matthew and his entire family will be sent from Pennsylvania to Disney all expenses paid!  How awesome is that!!!!! I couldn't be happier for them. Matthew sure deserves it, but so do his parents and siblings.

Now that I'm sure you are smiling and feel just as great as I do, how about a school related freebie? Here are answer choice cards that can be printed, labeled and attached to popsicle sticks. You can use them when students are choosing the correct answer in order to get a quick feel for the class, or when groups of students are responding. 

Have an awesome night!


  1. Boy I am tired...,it should say that the answer cards can be laminated, not labeled!

  2. LOVE your story and LOVE LOVE the choice cards! Thanks for sharing! :)
