March #SOLC17 Day 5
We walked to the nursing home.
We walked together in one long line from the school to “The Pointe.”
We walked in and around and in the puddles.
We walked and then we stopped walking when we saw worms.
We walked and we were blown away by the cold winds.
We walked and we laughed as the cold winds blew.
We walked and we finally made it inside to the warmth.
We walked and we were greeted by smiling faces in their wheelchairs and holding on to their walkers.
We stayed and we were told how glad they were that they got out of bed on this day.
We stayed and we heard how special we were and how nice it was that we came.
We stayed and we exercised together.
We stayed and we read our exercising brochures to our new senior friends.
We stayed and then we walked back to school with our hearts a little more full.
We walked back to school retelling stories of the lady with the cane and the man who didn’t talk and how their faces changed when we appeared.
We walked back to school arm in arm with our classmates feeling good about what we had done.
We walked back to school and then we stopped walking when we found more worms.
