Volunteering Possibilities, Part II

We got our contact info for the next volunteer opportunity.

1. Elderhaven Adult Day Health Care Centers

I spoke to the Director, and she sounded far less optimistic that there would be something I could do while simultaneously keeping the boy out of trouble. She's particularly concerned that the old folks might trip over him. When the weather's nicer, she wants me to come by and see the facility, and maybe there's something we can do outside.

2. The Care Communities

3. Meals on Wheels

We'll be trying this one on Tuesday. I was hesitant about this because I wasn't sure about adding more time in the car to Thumper's schedule, and given that more than a couple of people at the nursing home weren't too keen on having him around, I wasn't too sure about bringing him into other people's homes when we deliver meals. But it's only an hour a week, so we're going to see how it goes. It encroaches on his morning nap, too, but maybe this is what will get his nap schedule to finally shift. I'm a little nervous. Social awkwardness, here we come! I'm looking forward to it, too, though.

4. Texas Baptist Children's Home

5. Austin Children's Museum

What an awesome Daddy you are. Thanks for setting an example. (And not just for Thumper).
