I took the Arkansas babies to see their great-grandpa Bill.
He did not make any indication that he knew who we were. But when I put Eli on his lap, he said something. Couldn't make it out. Even if he didn't know, it was good for the children to see their Papa's daddy.
The residents were smiling at the children. One elderly lady said, "It makes my life worth living to see these little ones"!
After visiting Grandpa Bill for a while, we went to the farm. The family farm is just 5 miles outside of Pretty Prairie. Al's youngest brother and his family live there now. A farm is a wonderful place for little kids!
