This just happened....

Today was Hunter Paul Faucheaux's 1st day of Pre-K 3! It's a full time class, 5 days a week that goes from Pre K 3 through 3rd grade. What an amazing and beautiful journey he has been on to have the ability to be mainstreamed and to attend the same little private school I did when I was in elementary in New Iberia. If you remember our summer trip to PA to see St. Katharine Drexel's shrine with Mrs. Karen, the principal of St. Edward, you know that St. Katharine Drexel founded St. Edward School. And Mrs. Karen has upheld her image and her spirit in everything that they do at St. Edward's.

I have to say I am one proud mama. It took a village to get Hunter where he needed to be, and I mean a village. From everyone in our family who cheered, and prayed, and babysat, and drove Hunter to Baton Rouge, to all of his therapists and everyday caregivers. And to our friends. I know Blair and I would still be standing today without our friends who gave us the courage to push on when we didn't think we could.
This picture right here is worth a thousand words!


  1. Omg, such a big boy!! Hope you and Blair are hanging in there on day 2 and Hunter is enjoying it! Love y'all and miss y'all!

  2. So inspiring! Way to go Hunter (and mom and dad)!
