Keshen Goodman Library Adult Learning Program
To begin my vacation, I go to Acadian Lines and purchase a round trip ticket to Middleton which costs me $60.00. I arrive at the Quick Way around ten p.m. My Mum and Dad pick me up and we drive back home to their house.
On a nice sunny day we would visit my brother and his wife. They have a nice little farm. On the farm, they have a young donkey that is a pet. As well, they have eight little calves, three chickens and two pigs. My brother is getting two white baby bunnies for his wife for Mother’s Day. I am looking forward to seeing them.
I like to go to church where I get to meet family and friends. I enjoy singing hymns and listening to the sermon. The children go to the front of the church and tell stories.
I also enjoy working around the yard picking vegetables out of the garden. Sometimes we go for a drive in the country.
I really enjoy being with my parents.

Keshen Goodman Library Tutor
I find it hard to believe that I’ve been tutoring at the Keshen Goodman Library for five years now. I thought about tutoring for some time but it took me a while to work up the nerve to make the call. It’s a call I’ve never regretted making though. Ken and I have been working away for a long time and we’ve made really good progress. Since we first met, I’ve seen great changes not only in his reading, writing and math skills (which have been tremendous) but also in his self confidence. I think though, that the experience has been just as rewarding for me. It’s quite a feeling to see someone come so far and feel that you’ve helped to guide them along their journey. Those opportunities don’t come along too often in a person’s life and I’m glad I seized it when it did.
