Last week a horrific accident happen during an outing with my five year old daughter's afternoon program. Ella participates in a wonderful program once a week with other children ranging in ages. I love this program - they do so many awesome activities. Last week the group ventured out into the woods to check out a shelter that the local homeschoolers (mostly mom's with their strollers) built. It was a windy and beautiful day. The last sentiments that I said to the Ella's teacher was " Yay - good for you going out in any kind of weather!" I kissed Ella goodbye and went on my way. Little did I know what trouble would lay ahead. Ella's teacher was seriously injured when a tree branch fell on the shelter trapping her. A second teacher was also injured but will be ok. Miraculously not one child was injured. The teacher that was trapped broke four vertebrae in her back. We are praying that she will not have painful recovery and we will keep that positive thought . She is constantly on our mind and in our prayers. Please send Ella's teacher and all those involved healing energy.
I am so sorry that this has happen. I am full of tears and grateful that our children are ok. Now, we need our teacher to be ok too.
