Service Reflection: Cameron Falkenburg

This is the second week I've been able to volunteer at the Transitional Living Center. Both weeks have held a few small surprises and a variety of interactions that I wouldn't have expected to have.

The first week that I spent at TLC, I got to help a 2nd grader do his homework. Aiden had just had a hair cut was was rocking his Mohawk like a 90's rock star. Along with this do, he had a tape on mustache, very realistic and quite convincing if you ask me.

Aiden was going through the same second grade struggles that I went through, trying to learn how to spell... One of his words was fox. When we got to fox, Aiden looked up at me and said, "What does the fox say?" Me being the ignorant college student responded in a fluster. I really wasn't sure what to say. Aiden, without pause, breaks out into song, "Ring ding ding ding..." For those of you who haven't seen the video, just google "what does the fox say" and be astounded that someone thought that up.

This just goes to show that you can't be prepared for everything that gets thrown at you at TLC. Some times they are balls, other times crazy song lyrics. But it's always fun and always interesting.
