This was my first day of spending a full 8 hours "On the floor" at the Care Center. I learned a lot and was able to start helping with some things. I made a list during chores and found that I know about 2/3 of the residents' first names now and remember most of the staff's names as well (the ones that I've met). Now I just need to learn the others' names, and then the last names, and then their likes and dislikes, and how much help they need, and when they takes naps and when they get up, and........ Thankfully, they're very gracious there and know that these things take time!
Exciting things have been happening at home too, I hear...
Two of the Bartletts came to join Dad in talking with a Senator friend of ours about home schooling (and then they also bought a steer from us to raise).
The railroad people have come and started clearing up our rock piles in the fields, as they need the rocks for building up a track about 4 miles away.
Many more new calves are popping out each day. I hear 4 of my cows had babies today! :)
Mom had a new client this afternoon here at home.
Andrew (mostly) and Dad still have lots of grain to clean.
And I'm sure much more has happened too that I'm not even aware of......
It is so wonderful to come back home again after being gone for what seems like a good part of the day. What a wonderful comfort home is!
