Visiting at the Luthercare Home

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.

The Festival of Trees!

Today I helped Lily-Ann’s teachers take the class to the Festival of Trees at The Western Development Museum here in Saskatoon.  Both the morning class and the afternoon class came, and we had a number of parent helpers… So each adult had three little ones to escort through the displays.  I took the wee girlie, Tahani, and Austin.  They had a wonderful time, and did pretty good with my holding hands rule.  I only had to threaten to “get medieval” a couple of times.  😉

I had a hard time narrowing down my photos today.  There were so many cute moments and lovely things to see.  But in the end, I had to go with this one:

PEACE

 

I just love how you can see bits and pieces of the children’s faces reflected in the mirrored ornament.  🙂  It was just a really nice moment.

I’m sure I’ll upload more to a facebook album, and when I do I’ll share the link here.  But again, you’ll only be able to see the photos if you are on my friends list.  Sorry all.  It’s about protecting the kids.

So…  time for me to go look in on my sleeping girlie.

Peace.  😉
