The Youngest Volunteer

Hailey is the official youngest volunteer at Tendercare Nursing Home. Lately we've been taking her babies for walks and roaming the halls of the nursing home. She helps push the residents in their wheelchairs and shows off her babies as they eat their meal. We visit a couple ladies that are a little more coherent in the common room. They absolutely LOVE her! We always walk down each hall to wave and say "Hi" to every resident that is in their room. It's really neat that she's not afraid of any of their machines or of all the new faces. She is just excited that they're in "strollers" too!

Another post?? WOW! It's a record :)!

I bet the elderly people at the nursing home just LOVE seeing a little one walking down the hall--I'm sure she just makes their day. How sweet of you to take her.

I remember when I would take Riley to the one in Spring Arbor and the people would open their doors just to watch her crawl down the halls. :)
