Last year the head teacher of Lil, Sonny & Sky's school sadly passed away.
One of the tributes to him was a balloon release.
All the children made tags with their names, form and the schools e-mail and a little bit of writing or a drawing about what the head teacher meant to them.
This was last July I think before they broke up for the summer.
The amazing thing is,
Sky's form teacher received an e-mail from a teacher in Sweden saying that her father in-law had been walking in the woods and found a tag attached to a tree and passed it onto her,
the name on the tag was Skyla's!
Nearly a year later the tag had survived.
If you look on the map at Manchester then look to where the 'A' is marked the balloon crossed the North Sea and Denmark to get stuck in a tree in southern Sweden, then found by somebody kind enough to get in touch and let the school know!
I'm a great believer in everything happens for a reason, good and bad, and that there are no accidents, just lessons to be learnt.
don't you think that it's amazing!
