Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week

by

February 7-14, 2015 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week and I’m always happy to spread the word about CHDs…especially when it involves a classroom full of friends and a fun craft!  🙂

Rudy’s teachers gave me the opportunity to come to Rudy’s classroom today and share about CHD Awareness Week with his classmates.  The kids were great and I had lots of fun hanging with them for a bit.  Together we defined “congenital heart defect” and we talked about how important it is to learn about CHDs…i.e. to understand kids like Rudy better and to remind us to be “heart healthy”.  We ate blueberries (a heart healthy food) and made a CHD heart magnet to display at home.  Fun, Fun!

Olivia made me a new insert for my phone case this morning!   LOVE IT!
