Visiting Great-Grandma CarleneTuesday January 4, 2011
Whew! We were gone from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today. I guess it's a normal workday for some, but I'm not used to going for that long...especially not toting around 3 kids.
Actually, the kids went to Grandma Clock's house for the morning, while The Hub and I had the privilege of volunteering for a "Safe at Home" program for the elderly. We learned to install grab bars and a handrail (in 30 degree temperatures!). Certainly not our typical homeschool day.
It was such a meaningful experience. I really enjoyed spending time with this elderly woman, and she was so appreciative of the service and the company. And...Your Little Homie got to drill a hole in concrete! Can you believe I did that?!
We rushed back from her house to Nature Girl's Art lesson, so she gets one credit today. However, I know what she really got was more valuable than any homeschool log book can record. Seeing her parents serve with gladness and visiting a dear Great-Grandma: that value is priceless.
