This past Thursday we met Mr. Bob Mitchell, MiKayla’s very special Papa. Mr. Mitchell was born in Anderson, Missouri. He served in the United States Air Force for 20 years as a navigator. He has traveled all around the world with the Air Force. He is now in the clothing business. He is passionate about his family, basketball and photography! MiKayla adores her Papa and they share a very special bond. They shared with the class a wonderful song called, “MiKayla’s Alphabet” and they sang it for us twice! We enjoyed it so much! What a wonderful time we had interviewing Mr. Bob Mitchell, MiKayla’s Papa!

Cherish invited a very special guest to our classroom today. Today we met Mrs. Beks Torres known as “Tia Torres” to Cherish. Mrs. Torres is passionate about rescuing animals. She has a big heart for dogs! We saw pictures of Rufus, Bear, Zoe, Ariyel, Duke, Hurley and Isabelle. They are all very special rescued animals that Mrs. Torres saved. We even got to meet one of the rescued dogs. Her name is Hurley and she has been adopted by the Torres family. Mrs. Torres gave us an important message to remember that we should “treat animals like animals and not like people”. She loves to read and research about dogs. She has inspired many of us to learn more about animals and we enjoyed her special interview today!

Do you know who we met today? We met a very special person in Ian Morgan's life. We met his mom! Mrs. Tara Morgan is a nurse at The Grand Strand Health Care Center. She is passionate about helping others. Mrs. Morgan shared with us that her mother and father moved from Ireland to a rural town in Connecticut just before she was born! Mrs. Morgan grew up in Connecticut and she and Mr. Morgan decided to move to the beach about four years ago. She has since convinced Ian's grandparents to move closer and they now live in South Carolina, too! Mrs. Morgan loves to spend time with her family. They especially love to go to the beach together! We truly enjoyed learning about Mrs. Tara today. She taught us so much about caring for others! Thank you for sharing your heart with us today Mrs. Tara!
