A Dream of Christi's - to go to Heidelberg University! (It just came true!)

I was incredibly touched recently to have the sweet secretary at the Education Department at Heidelberg University contact me and say they would like to include Christi in the mural going outside of the Early Childhood Classroom.  She asked me to come in and meet the artist, and what a talented, sweet and amazing woman Beth is!  I shared a bit about Christi and her connection to the Berg with her and I was so proud of myself for not crying (until I got to my car that is)!  Sherri Bowerman´╗┐ kindly shared photos of Christi with the artist and I headed out.  Much to my surprise and delight I'm blown away by this incredible mural!  The likeness of Christi is mind-boggling and I could not be more appreciative or pleased!  Thank you so much to Beth, Sherri and Heidelberg's Education Department for remembering our "little lemonade girl".  We'll see you soon!  THANKS!

Oh I do LOVE this! Christi at the Burg! It makes me cry. I will never forget her, and tons of new people will see her everyday! There is no telling what her sweet heart and amazing brain could have brought to this world! I love that she is immortalized in this way. She's an inspiration to all of us, and to all these new teachers just starting their journeys. I know she is smiling!

Love you guys,
