Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to visit someone elderly.  Rex, Baden, and I visited our sweet neighbors across the street.  They are amazing people.  They live in a large two story home, they are in their nineties, and they just celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary. 

They have those stair chair lifts on every staircase and they let my boys ride them for fun.  They have an area upstairs that overlooks their family room and up there they have baskets full of paper airplanes.  They let the boys take turns flying them.  (They even fly the airlplanes themselves when no kids are around.)  Yes, they are extraordinary people.

 It makes me happy to see them.  The boys really enjoy visiting them as well.  They are so kind and thoughtful.  I'd like to be them when I grow up.  They sent the boys home with these glow sticks.

So let's talk about next week's challenge.  Do something kind for a public service worker.  Maybe you want to make cookies for the garbage worker.  Maybe you and your kids want to write a note to the firefighters.  Maybe you want to bring in some hot chocolate for the police officers.  It's a pretty open challenge and I can't wait to see what you decide to do.  I'm still figuring out what I'm going to do.  I'm excited.

Now, did any of you visit someone elderly this week?  Please tell us how it went.  These are my very favorite comments to read all week!  Thanks for sharing! 

And before you go I wanted to tell you about a great auction going on for the Chase Family.  I made some things that are for sale, as did a ton of other people.  It's a wonderful cause and there are some beautiful items you can buy.  Check it out by clicking the picture below.
