Morgan asks us today to be playful. To remember playing as a child. I tried to write a tongue twister, but none of them worked out.
Then I remembered that I have lots of photos of grandchildren playing. This is one of my favorites that Jim took on that day almost 12 years ago, when two of our children and their families came to the old homestead to tell mom goodbye. The littles didn’t know any better and were able to play outside. At the time, we only had 3 grandchildren. Now we have eight.
