|Fun Despite the Weather||June 17, 2016|
We planned on having our very first Camp Rockwood for 2016.
Camp Rockwood where we all go to the park, grill hotdogs, love being outside and do ALOT of relaxing! However, mother nature had a different plan and it rained like cats and dogs!!! Not to be defeated, we had our picnic in-doors. We still grilled hotdogs. We still did a craft project. However, instead of relaxing by the river, we bowled in the gym.
Great fun was had by all!
Everyone decided to have fun despite the weather!
What do you see in people and dogs?
Don't say people love
Say it is puppy love! :)
|Heal the World||by Madeeya|
On Thursday, May 12, 2016 we made these cat toys for a new group that
we have called Heal the World because we wanted to give back to our community.
We took different colored socks and white socks and stuffed the
socks with stuffing from a pillow and cat nip.
The cat toys will go to our local animal shelter called Happy Tails.
Way to go Heal The World Group and Toni !

|Educating||April 15, 2016|
Last Friday, Shelly, Madeeya, Tarik, Shelley, and Larry drove down to Moline
and did a presentation to a bunch of school age children (third through eighth graders) about what it was
like growing up with at disability, living with a disability and the frustrations
of having a disability. We did our presentation at the Temple School.
The staff and children were wonderful and to the delight of the residents, the children proudly announced that they
were not afraid of people in wheelchairs.
This was the dream of Shelly and Shelley, to go out into schools and educate children to not be afraid of them. As Shelly will tell you, if you see me in Walmart just say hello!!
We have done this presentation at the P-town high school health class a few times and at the Christian Lutheran School in Sterling once. It is a great educational experience for children to see and understand that a wheelchair is merely a device that facilitates transportation--not a wall that seperates the person in the wheelchair from the person walking around.
We hope to do more presentations in the future!
