Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer today, and I hope you’re having a great week. Memorial Day is coming up on Monday, May 25th, and it’s a day when we remember and honor all of the brave soldiers who fought for our country. These men and women gave everything they had to protect us all, and we are so lucky for their bravery, selfless, and dedication to freedom. In honor of these soldiers, Berry Bruised and I wrote a poem. We hope you like it!
Memorial Day Wishes
These men and women
So we can be free.
So proud of our troops.
We remember them always
In our thoughts
And our hearts.
Thank you, troops, for everything that you do! And don’t forget…have a critterrific Memorial Day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re all having a good week. You’ve probably heard the expression, “April showers bring May flowers,” and there’s really a reason behind this well-known saying. May is actually the highlight of the year when it comes to flowers. Ping & Pong told me that during May, flowers like tulips, lilacs, and azaleas all come into season. Talk about flower power! We started a garden here at the hospital, and the flowers have really started blooming. It’s so fun to see (and smell!) all of these beautiful flowers.
Do you have a garden? Be sure to let us know!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope your day is off to a great start! Did you know that today is National Teacher Appreciation Day? Teachers do so much for all of us, and today is the perfect day to thank them for all of their dedication, kindness, support, and encouragement. They help us learn, they help us grow, and they help open our minds to so many new and amazing things. We are all so blessed to have teachers who devote their days and nights to helping others. To all the teachers out there, we are forever grateful!
Be sure to thank the teachers in your life. And don’t forget…have a critterrific learning-filled day!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Last night I had the coolest dream. I dreamt that Max, the Hospital Critterz, and I went back to the prairie and got to hang out with our terrific friends Caleb and Tiny, just like in the book, Hospital Critterz: The Prairie Pet by Stacey Laura Lloyd. It was so fun! I love when dreams seem so real and exciting, but then you wake up and think…why didn’t that really happen?!? Oh well. The good news is that you never know when you’re going to have another amazing dream like that, and it could definitely happen the next night. So keep on dreaming!
Have you had any memorable dreams lately? What were they about? Be sure to let us know! And don’t forget…have a dream-filled critterrific night!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome week. Sometimes there are those days when all you need is a hug. Perhaps things aren’t exactly going your way, or maybe you’re just feeling a little bit blah. A hug can really brighten your day, whether you’re giving a hug or receiving a hug. It’s a way to show love and support without using any words. A hug can be just what you need to feel better and add a little pep in your step. Everyone deserves a hug!
Who are you going to hug today?
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having an awesome week. Did you know that this week is Garden Week? As you can guess, Ping & Pong and Day Z Girl were really celebrating. Having a garden is truly an amazing thing. You plant and water a seed, and after a little time and care, you can watch that seed grow into something beautiful. It’s so much fun! Do you have a garden? You can plant so many things like flowers, vegetables, and fruits. It seems the choices are endless!
Now it’s your turn to plant a garden…and don’t forget, have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day that’s full of laughter and fun. Why? Because it’s April Fools’ Day! And that means it’s the perfect day to be silly. It’s the day when we can all be lighthearted and carefree. We can enjoy good jokes with good friends, and we can find moments to giggle and play. After all, what better day to act goofy than on a day dedicated to joking around? But, I’ll probably spend the day not laughing at all…April Fools!
Bye for now!
