Spring Has Sprung at the Green House Homes in Sheridan, Wyoming

The weather has warmed and melted away the white of winter.  We honor and love our elders while we welcome the new life of spring with open arms.  Spring can mean baby season around here!

A Shahbaz from Whitney cottage came up on her time-off to bring her Clydesdale to meet the elders of GHL. Elders from all four cottages stood out in the sunshine to see and pet the gentle giant of a horse. elder-rubbing-nose-of-horse_cropped1
Our own Dietary Mentor, Emily, brought in her three new baby chicks of this spring.  They were a hit with their happy peeping that brought spring sounds indoors.

People are even bringing their own babies into GHL.  You can see Harold Sethne from Scott cottage holding a newborn from his family.elder-and-new-baby_cropped1

It’s the energetic youth and new birth that brings such life to our Green House community.  There is so much joy to be shared when we all gather to nurture and love the babies of our spring.elder-and-staff-and-horse_cropped
