Meals on Wheels

Froggy and I have started driving for meals on wheels.  We have gone three times now. And we love it.  Froggy's only complaint the first time, we did it was that not enough of the people on our route were home so that she could chat with them.  

We have done two different routes in order to meet different people and to learn more about how the program works.  At this point, I think we have settled into what we hope will be our regular route which we will get to do roughly once a week.  That way we can see the same faces and really get to know the people.

On our second trip, one of the clients did not answer the door and her dog was there whining at the door. We called the coordinator who notified her family right away.  It left quite an impression on Froggy.  She has asked if we could please go back on that route again even though it is far and not the route we want just so we can check on her.

This is reason 629 why we homeschool.  There is no way, either Froggy or I would ever have the opportunity to do these kinds of mitzvot or have these experiences if we had to live the traditional lives of school and office.
