Since I am able to stay home with the boys (thanks to Rich working so hard), I have been trying to get them involved in different things. One of the things I wanted to do is get involved in some community service projects. Another mom I met down here told me about The Southeastern Guide Dog Association. They train and provide dogs mainly for the visually impaired, and sometimes for those with secondary disabilities, such as a wheelchair, free of charge. But in order for the puppies to become acclimated to a variety of situations, they have what they call "puppy hugging" several times a week. And after bringing Tyler today, we will be back every week. He had SO much fun! What a great introduction to community service!
If you would like more information, here is their website:
I would really like to challenge all my other friends who read this blog, if you have the time, go find someplace to volunteer or help. It is a great way to instill empathy in our future generations and it can be a lot of fun!
