A while back I mentioned that our school had adopted a soldier, US Marine to be specific. The kids put on a wonderful assembly to send him off, tied a yellow ribbon in front of the school, sent cards and gifts and waited for his return.
Well, today he came to school along with his family and cut down that yellow ribbon. The kids put on another great assembly welcoming him back home. It was extremely touching and I was NOT the only person there that was crying.
Welcome home Matthew!
