On Thursday we walked to Daystar Retirement Village. We were all excited but also a little nervous. We went to visit the residents who cannot easily leave. The kids brought a favorite book to share but were a little shy, so I read Frog and Toad to everyone. The kids then drew pictures and gave them to our new friends. There were a few moments that just stopped my heart. When we got back to school, we talked for a long time about our experience. Some of the kids thought it was really fun and that it was a kind place, some thought it was a little bit fun and some thought it was kind of scary but we all decided that it was important and that we want to go back. So, we will go again in two weeks.
