Meet Regina and Al. Their friendship and respect for one another all started at a fundraiser before a Phillies baseball game in 2019. “I watched Regina give a beautiful speech at the event about her recently diagnosed son, Shane,” recalled Al. “I thought to myself, ‘My friends at Cure SMA need to meet this amazing mom and get her involved.’”
Happy Monday! It’s the last day of September — originally, I wasn’t ready for summer to end, but now I’m looking forward to fall.
In her latest column, Alyssa reflects on the back-to-school season. She remembers her first day of middle school and all the emotions that went along with it: excitement, nerves, and anticipation, among others. Imagine her surprise when the principal sent Alyssa home because she stank! Apparently, a baby skunk had taken up residence beneath the ramp outside her house. The skunk sprayed her each time she used it!
I laughed out loud when I read that. Talk about a memorable first day of middle school! Alyssa says that as humorous as it was, the whole ordeal taught her to find humor in all of life’s challenges.
Do you have any memorable back-to-school stories?
