KEITHVILLE, LA (KSLA) -

A couple of Keithville Elementary-Middle School students got a sweet surprise Thursday morning, when their mother dropped in on them during an assembly.

Army Specialist Ebony Stinson has been away for a year, serving her second tour in Iraq.

Jerrmiah Green is in kindergarten at Keithville EMS, and 6-year-old Makayla Gay is 1st grade. Stinson also has a niece, Sha'Brittany Rose, at the school.

She says she just couldn't wait for her children to get home, so she arranged to show up at the school."It was a good feeling, a feeling I've been waiting for since last year. It was a good feeling!"

Stinson is returning from a tour in Afghanistan.
