We've been wanting to take a trip on the Spirit of Peoria for over a year now.
But with all of the events going on down at the riverfront, it just wasn't practical to get in and out with our bus-full of residents.
We've got a date now--tomorrow--and things are being prepared for this big outing. We've got things like sun hats, sunscreen, bug spray, and even a few blankets in totes ready to go. We've got the lists of people who want to go along. We've got volunteers and Junior Volunteers lined up. We've made arrangements with the kitchen about eating an early lunch.
It's true that going on outings is a lot of preparation, forward thinking, and hard work. But the smiles on the faces of these people we've come to love makes it all worth it.
Tomorrow, we're looking forward to lots of smiles and memories to take home with us.
