I have a lot to be thankful for. I am healthy, happy and I am loved.”

Reba McEntire 

Dear Families of room 106,

I hope this message finds you well and rested after this week! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Mine started a little rocky on Tuesday afternoon as Antonia came down with a fever and croup 🙁 However, she bounced right back by the next morning and is doing just great! She even was able to make it to Thanksgiving dinner at her aunt Lizzie’s house 🙂 I am SO thankful for the health of my children among so many other blessings like the children I am able to teach and learn with each day. THANK YOU all so very much for being the amazing parents and partners with me this year! I can NOT believe that it will be December this week! I am so proud of all we have accomplished together this year, however the year needs to SLOW DOWN hee hee! I selfishly do not want it to come to an end 🙂

Here is what you can expect this week and if there are any additions or changes I’ll be sure to write again! Have a wonderful week!


Mrs. Ross 🙂
