This blog is written by our roving reporter, Heidi Hill, who participates in the Developmental Skills Laboratory Adult Day Program at USU.  Heidi loves to type and has fun  reporting on all of the fun activities that the adult participants-her “buds”- do during the month.

Heidi’s bus and van buds went to see “The Avengers” at this one theater house.

We also went by bus and van to “Hill” Air Force Base…no relation to yours truly!  We saw some mighty fast flyers in our day.  a participant next to a fighter planeWe ate lunch just ‘neath an airplane.  We saw planes from World War II and a replica of Air Force One which is used only by our Commander in Chief, also known as the President of the United States!

One day we went to Aggie Ice Cream and had some delicious ice cream!

We made strawberry jam for Father’s Day.

We had a very great and busy month in June at DSL!

This past January, here at the worksite (DSL), we had green eggs and ham for lunch,that tasted good with orange juice.

Then we read this funny book about the things which made everyone come unglued, and laugh super hard!  Then we had “Seussical the Musical.”  Our day was really great!

 

 

 

We went bowling and also looked for books in the library. We also had a slumber party and we brought stuffed animals from home.

Music therapy has been great here on campus.  Everybody played and sang in the band.

All in all it has been a good month at DSL!
