Greetings from Jonestown! The Delta has had a beautiful fall this year—lots of sunny days and cool nights. I love to hear the wild geese overhead in the morning as they fly south for the winter. The little toddlers and Montessori children are learning so much and enjoy singing, working on puzzles, and working on all the various reading, language and math activities in the environment.
Mrs. Chelesa Presley of Delta Health Partners, is working with pregnant and parenting moms to encourage breast-feeding. My sister Jenny Shields, a nurse and lactation consultant, came down for a few weeks this fall to work with her. Classes are being held in Jonestown every other week to support young parents in their efforts to raise successful, happy children.
