Mom surprised me when she told me that she was going to be learning to use a computer. I was like, “WHAT?!” After all this, and NOW you want to learn to use a computer? Well, better late than never.
One of the first games mom played on “It’s Never 2 Late” was chess with high school volunteer Alex Jensen.
Mom said she really enjoyed playing chess but also warned Alex that she was probably going to need help remembering how to play. They played for an hour and the game ended in a draw.
She told me that she also used this really cool map thing and was able to go look at the house in Big Bend.
Papke decided to check out the new technology that came to Linden Grove this summer because she wanted to be able to Skype with her daughter. Before that, she used a computer a little for email, but she said she wasn’t “into it that much.”
As Jensen showed Papke the different apps available through the program and how to maneuver through each with the touch screen monitor, they visited Papke’s previous home in Big Bend via Google Earth.
The full story, mom did not just decide to use the new service at Lindon Grove, she was featured in a big press release! I guess we have a celebrity in the family now… Read the full Press Release story here.
