On Tuesday Columbian Park Zoo brought some fascinating animals! We saw a yellow spotted turtle who is new to the zoo. He hasn't even been named yet. Dexter and Easy,two tiny sugar gliders were very cranky and didn't want to come out of their pouch but they sure were cute. The biggest hit with the residents was Tartan the baby Nigerian dwarf goat. We were told that one goat could feed a family of four people in Nigeria. Today Sam came and played the keyboard while he sang favorite patriotic songs. He was a hit and many residents sang along.

The residents decorated their dining room with flags, banners and table decorations for the 4th of July holiday. They also went out on the patio to watch the fireworks. Today we exercised in the morning, read "Today in History" (Did you know construction of the Hoover Dam began on this date in 1930?) then played catch with the beach ball, which is a favorite activity. It was so nice on the patio that we spent some time out there before coming inside for the Cubs vs. Reds baseball game. Everyone enjoyed fresh popcorn during the game.

Baby J is to be born in Aug. The residents made a cake from diapers and ribbon for him. Our tomatoes are ripening and the thyme and basil are growing well along with all the flowers.

Just to introduce myself; I am Julia the new Life Enrichment Coordinator. Your family members have been keeping me busy with all sorts of activities. We have planted our garden with tomatoes, herbs, and flowers all of which are growing nicely in spite of the heat. Jen, QMA, CNA, helps them to plant 5 beautiful planters of petunias and other plants for the patio. We spent one afternoon watching the Cubs win a baseball game. We enjoyed popcorn, chocolate and corndogs!

I hope everyone enjoyed Easter Sunday! Especially with the snow! Certainly, Mother Nature does have a sense of humor. Snow on April 1, April Fool's Day!? Welcome to Indiana. I can appreciate the humor, I guess. Over the weekend, our residents kept busy. Jen Hodge, QMA, led a tie-dye t-shirt activity on Saturday. Really, I have not ever had any design luck with the tie-dye technique. But, WOW!! You should see these tie-dye designs!!! The color choices and designs are fashionably unique! Easter cupcakes were creatively made with lots of love, too. Our residents assisted in every task, including adding coconut and green food coloring to the icing, putting the icing on and adding jelly beans to make a nest. Additionally, Jen's family joined our residents and decorated eggs & baskets. Happily, our residents filled plastic eggs with candy and hid them, too. Jen's son, age 2 1/2, hunted for the eggs, with an abundance of energy and excitement! A big THANK YOU to Jen and her family!
