Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter Maddie Aldrige has returned to her normal life after an ATV accident left the 8-year-old in critical condition. 

Spears shared an update to Instagram on Saturday afternoon, where she thanked her fans for their ongoing support of her family. "So blessed to say that my daughter has fully recovered, and returned to all her normal activities," Britney Spears' younger sister wrote alongside a picture of herself in a trailer. 

"Which means I had to as well, today is my first day back to work," Jamie lynn added. "I want to thank everyone again for all their prayers...God truly blessed us with a miracle.. love y'all #Godisgood"

The accident, which happened nearly three weeks ago, occurred when the ATV Maddie was riding in Kentwood, La. flipped into a nearby pond. Aldrige was reportedly submerged under water for several minutes before being airlifted to a New Orleans hospital. 

Jamie Lynn's little girl remained hospitalized for five days, and returned home with her mom and stepfather via helicopter. 

Over Valentine's Day, Maddie—who had not yet gone back to school at the time—visited her classmates to pass out some sweet treats. 

"Maddie isn't quite ready to return to school, but her doctors did clear her to bring in her Valentine's Day treats to her class today," Jamie Lynn shared on Instagram. "It made her so happy to see her friends, and be able to give them such cute treats. It was a great moment for us after everything that has happened. We are so thankful to celebrate Valentine's Day with the ones we love, and we don't take a second of it for granted."

Congratulations to Maddie on such a speedy recovery!
