Lincoln is a Great Place For Children Because of Mentors

Foster Grandparent Program – I received an inspirational call from Elisa Stutheit, Aging Partners, Foster Grandparent Program Project Director. She thanked us for highlighting mentorships in a recent NEBLINE, Who Mentors Your Children & Grandchildren?

She shared another great mentor opportunity. “Foster Grandparent Program”FosterGranparents478121_335825069788591_1035885146_o. There is also a great article about two current volunteers in the January edition of Living Well, found here, scroll to the bottom of the home page & click on the Living Well icon, choose Winter 2015, and go to pages 6-7. You can learn more about the Foster Grandparent Program in Nebraska on this Facebook page

“Back in the day, in Otoe County, my mom was an extension member & I was a 4-H’er, so I have long appreciated Extension. At work, extension presenters have come to our FGP in-services to speak on a variety of topics from food to bed bugs. This January, I created an FGP journal from the “Happy Healthy New Year” article. I also use NEBLINE information at home & someday will actually use the instructions on how to reseed my yard.” Elisa Stutheit.

Walking Like a Penguin!

University of Nebraska-Lincoln posted quick tips this morning to help us all navigate ice and snow. I chuckled a bit when I watched the video because my kids already tell me I waddle a little – guess I’m doing it right! This video is only 1 minute long.

Stay safe this winter and remember to “walk like a penguin”!
