As part of the celebration of the 175th anniversary of Relief Society, women gathered Saturday morning for a Day of Service. Projects were intended mostly for the needy in our area including battered womens shelters, homeless shelters, retirement homes, refugee services, military service members, missionaries and others.
Sparkle Jane and I were immediately drawn to the area where baby dolls were being cleaned and given new custom clothing.
In just a few hours we were able to each do a few dolls.
A very successful way to spend a rainy Saturday morning.
I teach middle school English (students ages 11-14, mostly). It is a great job…I love the school I work at and the lively children I work with.
They often bring in things to share with me–treats, pictures, book, and, occasionally, a pet.
Like a snake.
Just a part of the daily life of a teacher.
