A Real Hero...

Nick Vujicic visited both Naseem & Matty's schools today. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see him in Camas and I was so glad I had the chance to hear him speak as well. Before the event, I spoke with some of the people who brought Nick to Camas. It turns out Nick's schedule is booked (solid!) for the NEXT THREE YEARS! Nick happens to be friends with the pastor of Grace Foursquare Church in Camas. It seems the pastor asked him if he could spare one day to come & speak to the kids & at the CHS Baccalaureate. Nick said yes. I am so glad he did! What an inspiring message he gave this morning. Naseem said the message he gave at her school was just awesome. Matty even got to give Nick a hug (Nas & I are still envious over that!).

Here are some photos I took this morning. I did ask Nick permission first and he said (in his lovely Australian accent) "Absolutely!!" One thing the kids and I all agreed on...we will NEVER forget today's speech.

Wow! What a story. I'd never heard of him.
Now I'm jealous too..... :(

What a terrific experience for all of those kids.
