So sorry it has been awhile since we have updated the site. Shane added some music so I hope you all enjoy it. We especially like the "Baby Girl" song so be sure to check it out.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Donor Walk. It was a beautiful day and all the support our team received was a great was to honor Ally's memory and support a terrific cause at the same time!
Ashley's class and the other afternoon Kindergarten class at her school held a small walk to support Ally's Angels. The kids seemed to have a blast and Ashley was even more proud to be Ally's big sister! Afterwards one of her classmates' mom came in to read the kids a few books about Angels. It was all so sweet. Thank you to Ashley's teacher, Mrs. Slaybaugh, for organizing this walk at school and for being such a wonderful teacher and friend to Ashley throughout the year.
Last Wednesday Ashley and I headed to Ally's school, Creative Minds Montessori, for Earth Day. Her teacher, Miss Mandy, thought it would be nice to plant a tree for Earth Day in memory of Ally. It was so nice to see all of Ally's classmates. Mandy read a touching poem that she wrote entitled "Ally's tree". As soon as I get a copy of it I will share it with you. After the tree planting ceremony the kids released red balloons. They told me they were sending them up to Ally in Heaven.
While at school I was reminded of how blessed we were to have the opportunity to send Ally to school there. I used to pray everynight that Ally would be healthy enough to go to school and play just like any other child. And although she didn't have a lot of time, my prayers were answered and she got to go to school and play just like all the other kids.
She was so proud of herself on her first day of school. She carried her lunch box, smiled and walked into her classroom. I will never forget how happy she looked! I am so thankful for Ally's school and for the precious memories I have of seeing Ally there. I will treasure them always.
I love you Ally...and miss you every moment of everyday baby girl!
