Although Rhianna breaking her arm was not very fun, we were really touched by the outpouring of love and support that she was shown by her many friends. Rhianna got lots of little gifts and cards and wishes of support from friends at school and church and grandmas and grandpas and aunts and uncles. We particularly thought the game of Operation was a funny gift after her surgery.
One of the coolest things that happened came courtesy of her teacher Ms. Kunk. First, let me start by saying that Ms. Kunk is an awesome kindergarten teacher. Rhianna had a great year and really loved her. We felt very blessed to get such a wonderful person to care for our child and teach her this year. The day after Rhianna broke her arm was scheduled to be a big party day at school. Rhianna was supposed to be the main announcer for the Kindergarten Celebration and there was food, stories, songs, and activities - and she was sad she had to miss it. Well Ms. Kunk decided that she would bring the party to Rhianna. After school, she (and her daughter Sammy who helped out this year in the class) came to our house with food, flowers, and games and let Rhianna experience all the things she missed out on. She had made a huge book for each kid with some of the things they had done in each unit. It was really great and made Rhianna feel so happy even though her arm was still hurting. Here are some cool pictures.
