Rockets away!

One of the best parts of living in a small community is how often Carrington Court receives visitors and offers to interact with various groups in our community. Recently a group of children from one of the neighborhoods close to Carrington came to ask if we would like to participate in launching foam rockets at a local South Jordan park. We, of course, said yes and we are very glad we did. The group consisted of Frank Loeffler (the previous LDS president for Carrington), his son, and his grandchildren. The adults showed us how they created the rocket launchers and showed us how to set them up. They then let us fire the rockets and the children ran after them to bring them back for the next person. We had so much fun interacting with the children and learning from the adults. Our assisted living crew is so thankful that we were able to participate in this awesome activity!
