Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great week. We can’t believe it’s almost the end of March! Where did this month go? So in honor of the many exciting things that March brings (and brought), Beary Bruised and I decided to write a poem. We hope you like it!
March Marches On
March marches on,
each day and each night,
bringing us happiness and wonder,
that are full of March delights.
Like St. Patrick’s Day, Purim, and International Women’s Day,
just to name a few.
And the first day of spring,
where things become anew.
Let’s celebrate March
with love, laughter, and cheer.
And let’s be so grateful
that the month of March is here!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you had an awesome St. Patrick’s Day! Here at the hospital, everyone and everything is still decked out in green. Dr. Ling is wearing a green tie, Samantha is wearing green scrubs, and Lily, the Hospital Critterz, and I lined the halls with green four-leaf clover decorations to get everyone in the St. Patrick’s Day mood. Plus, I’m wearing a green Baylor University basketball uniform to get into the spirit for March Madness. That’s my favorite part of March!
We hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope your week is going really well! This weekend we moved the clocks forward one hour for Daylight Savings. Even though we lost one hour of sleep (which nobody really likes), we ended up gaining one more hour of sunlight in the evening hours. For me, I really like it when it stays lighter later into the night. Whether you can play outdoors longer after school, take a stroll after dinner, or maybe just keep your windows open slightly later, there’s something really nice about getting to enjoy a day that seems a bit longer.
Happy Daylight Savings! And don’t forget…have a critterrific sun-filled day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a good week. This week has been really rainy here in Kite Tree, but instead of letting the rain bring us down, Lily, the Hospital Critterz, and I made a list of all of the great things about rain. Here it goes!
- It waters the plants. (Ping & Pong suggested this one.)
- It washes people’s cars.
- It gives you an excuse to put on rain boots and raincoats.
- The pitter patter of rain drops can help you fall asleep at night.
- You can jump and splash in puddle after puddle.
- You can focus on indoor activities like reading, drawing, and painting.
- It makes the sunshine even more exciting when it finally returns!
Be sure to add to our list with your own ideas!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful week. After talking with my friends, I realized that a lot of people are either “dog people” or “cat people.” Which kind of person are you? Or are you both? “Dog people” think dogs are better because dogs always want to play, they will always show you affection, and dogs comfort you when you’re sad. “Cat people” think cats are better because cats are independent, they snuggle when they want to, and they’re quite smart. In my opinion, I think dogs and cats are both great because they give people love and happiness. Plus, Kwon Do and Fishy Kitty are both awesome!
“Dog people” and “cat people” should unite! And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day! What makes you happy? Is it spending time with your family? Relaxing with friends? Going to the beach? Listening to your favorite song? Playing sports? Reading a great book? Walking your dog? Hanging out with your cat? Volunteering? Learning a new language? It’s time to do what makes you happy. That’s really what matters. Doing what makes you happy should be at the top of your to-do list!
