A Dallas second grader got quite the surprise at school on Friday when his military mother returned home from Kuwait.The setup happened around 8-year-old Elijah Murray Howard. Howard thought his mom, Private First Class Joann Murray, was in Kuwait, where she's been for the past eight months.
But Murray pulled off the real surprise during a fake assembly, where Howard thought another student would be honored.
Howard was standing with his teacher, thinking a special video message would play as soon as some technical difficulties were ironed out. Then, his mom surprised him.
"…When I saw him…I missed him so much," said Murray.
