Military mom surprises kids at school upon return

Three kids were overjoyed when their military mother walked into their school and surprised them after returning from active duty in Qatar.

Eliana's third grade class thought a famous artist was visiting, but instead Eliana's mom -- Master Sgt. Bethany Anderson-Burrs -- surprised her kids at the Colorado Springs area school.

She wasn’t due home for about another month. The class thought a world-renowned artist was coming to visit.

Their father said it was hard to keep the secret from Eliana, Eve, and Kaleb.

“They ask a lot of questions, like their mom,” Robert Burrs described. “They’re very inquisitive.”

But he was up to the challenge.

They weren’t the only ones shocked.

"I got off the plane and my husband said, 'Hey you've got somewhere to be,'" Master Sgt. Anderson-Burrs said.
