A day at school doesn't seem all that special to most kids but for one four-year-old boy, some time in the classroom was a dream come true.
Prabesh Sapkota just wants to be a regular kid and he was looking forward to the opportunity to do so for a long time.
His father, Pradeep Sapkota, says, "It's after two-and-a-half months he came out of the hospital room. So he's excited. He's happy."
Prabesh has leukemia and has been at the Nebraska Medical Center since November. The Make-a-Wish Foundation made Friday's trip possible.
Make-a-Wish volunteer Julie Robinson says, "He decided that his wish was really to ride a school bus and go to school. He's known all along that when he turns four he got to go to school. And now all of a sudden he's four. He couldn't understand why he couldn't leave the hospital and go to school."
At first, the four-year-old wasn't sure what to think of everything.
Robinson says, "When we got here, he ran up the steps into the school and was so excited. And then the minute he got in, he kind of, all of a sudden the apprehension set in and he got a little bit shy."
A classroom full of unfamiliar faces was a little scary at first but then he met Daisy, the hamster. That's when Prabesh started to open up.
"Now with the hamster and the kids, I think he's just loving it," Julie said. "It's his one chance to really be a normal kid."
His dad likes seeing Prabesh enjoy life.
"It's just awesome," he said. "I love it. Seeing him happy -- I'm happy, you know. It's great."
Prabesh was diagnosed with leukemia in October of 2006.
