The Harnisch Family

Let's go to School!

Macy and I were finally able to pay Grandma Harnisch a visit at her school in Fremont. Lynette's been itchin' and so has Macy. It's the end of the school year, so they had to start taking down all of the classroom decorations...but as you can see...there is still time before Lynette is forced to take down her beloved grandchildren photos! :-) How sweet is this??
Lynette had a career as a Home Health Care nurse, she retired several years ago. She was requested, due to her nursing background, to help a young girl who had Spina Bifida and required not only educational assistance, but medical assistance. She was there with Tiffany through most of her schooling. Tiffany has since graduated and Lynette could not have been more proud!! I always loved hearing Lynette's stories about how Tiffany was getting along. Tiffany sure was lucky to have such a genuinely sincere person caring for her while she was at school just trying to be a typical kid. I always had respect for what Lynette did, but Today MORE THAN EVER I appreciate the role that Para's like Lynette play in the lives of children who just need a little extra guidance and assistance. Thank you Lynette and all other Para's out there for doing what you do! Because of you I am confident that my Little Miss Macy will be able to go to school and have a typical school experience with her peers. Sure, she will need some help in many areas, but I am not worried about that. I hope and pray that when Macy finally goes to school she will be lucky enough to have teachers and para's with at least a fraction of the love and compassion that Lynette has for the kiddos she works with!
Here are some photos of our visit :-)

This is Angie, the teacher Lynette helps. She teaches ELL.
Macy and Mrs. Ross
A couple of the school's special education teacher's wanted to meet out little Macy.
A few more teachers who wanted to meet Macy! The gal holding Macy was especially sweet. Her parents adopted a 14 month baby boy who had Down Syndrome. Her brother is now 42 years old and doing very well! I loved hearing her stories! :-)
Now, we've gotta get ready for church, followed by Cousin Erika's H.S. graduation party, followed by cousin Mason's 3 year Birthday party. It'll be a full day full of family fun!
