  Favorite Things December 29, 2016  

Written by our residents with the help of Michelle (Music Therapist)
to be sung to the tune of "My Favorite Things"

 Good food, family, and whiskers on kittens
Playing soccer and watching Cubbies
Good health, friends, and good sense of humor
These are a few of my favorite things!
 Being awesome, kind, and helpful to others
Beautiful people, clothes, and earth
Faith in God, Winning Wheels and STRIVE
These are a few of our many blessings!
 When the weathers bad
When we're lonely
When we're feeling sad
 We simply remember our favorite things...
and then we don't feel so bad!!

  Mike meet "Mike" November 10, 2016  

For Halloween, Nichole dressed up as Lyndon Police Chief Mike Fisk. She printed up a picture of herself and presented it to Mike. He graciously accepted it and to Nichol's delight posed for a picture with her.
It is wonderful to have such a nice man on the police department.

  Hungry Hippos July 8, 2016  

This year we held our Independance Day party on Friday. We had it here in the LPC gym. Toni found a "Hungry Hippo" game that was live action (not the one with the marbles and the playing board)--so for our party we played "Hungry Hippos".
It was loud. It was crazy. It was crazy and loud!!
Everyone had LOTS of fun!
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. We sure did.

  Heal the World by Madeeya  

On Thursday, May 12, 2016 we made these cat toys for a new group that we have called Heal the World because we wanted to give back to our community.
We took different colored socks and white socks and stuffed the
socks with stuffing from a pillow and cat nip.
The cat toys will go to our local animal shelter called Happy Tails.
Way to go Heal The World Group and Toni !

  Educating April 15, 2016  

Last Friday, Shelly, Madeeya, Tarik, Shelley, and Larry drove down to Moline and did a presentation to a bunch of school age children (third through eighth graders) about what it was like growing up with at disability, living with a disability and the frustrations of having a disability. We did our presentation at the Temple School. The staff and children were wonderful and to the delight of the residents, the children proudly announced that they were not afraid of people in wheelchairs.
This was the dream of Shelly and Shelley, to go out into schools and educate children to not be afraid of them. As Shelly will tell you, if you see me in Walmart just say hello!!
We have done this presentation at the P-town high school health class a few times and at the Christian Lutheran School in Sterling once. It is a great educational experience for children to see and understand that a wheelchair is merely a device that facilitates transportation--not a wall that seperates the person in the wheelchair from the person walking around.
We hope to do more presentations in the future!
