Today I went with the girlie’s class on a field trip. I’m always happy to go and help out where I can… I love doing it, and I know the wee girlie loves having me there. 🙂 Anyway… LOL
The girlie’s class went to visit the Luthercare Home today. It’s a seniors home here in Saskatoon. Many of the little ones didn’t actually know where we were going or what we were doing, and when they asked I simply explained that we were going to see some Grandmas and Grandpas. And that not everyone is as lucky as some of us are, not everyone has lots of family. Which seemed to satisfy, and then they were all eager to visit with these new found grandparent friends.
Here’s a brief video of the class performing for the seniors (they did a song and a poem, but I only managed to capture one of them):
Lily-Ann is at the far right, behind the girl closest to Mrs. Rhonda. 🙂 She’s awfully big and expressive with her movements, she’s hard to miss. LOL
It was a nice trip. The kids had lots of fun, the “grandparents” did too… and so did I. I had a nice chance to talk with several of the residents, and most of them were absolutely charming individuals. Though one did get upset with me for not taking her to her room when she asked. I did my best to explain that if I had known where her room was I’d have been happy to help, and then made sure to find someone who was capable of assisting her… after which she shot me a glare. LOL Well, you can’t please everyone. 😉 But I did try.
