First Day of Summer Clinical Instruction

Despite the fact that I had to get up at 2:45 this morning in order to make it to the clinical on time, and the fact that I seem to be mainlining Dr. Pepper to stay awake, this day is going great!  Doing clinicals at a large hospital is certainly a great opportunity for the students, and they are learning so much!  The day has been very busy for all of the students and they have had the opportunity to participate in the care of many types of patients with differing needs.

Kalel's Special Days

The end of the school year brings programs to show family members just how much students have learned over the year.  This year Kalel had two special programs.

The next night Kalel got to participate in his school's "Celebration of Learning" where the kids showed off songs and things they have learned over the last few months.

 It is really fun that his cousin, Corbin, is in his class! They made a traveling suitcase out of a box and learned all about maps and traveling!  They even received a cookbook made up of recipes from friends and families all over the world!  Kalel loves his school, and he is learning so much!
