Unusual, but very welcome

   I have not much time for writing, but since the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” I’ll put on a few thousand.  When I came up with the idea, I wondered whether it was too crazy even to suggest, yet less than two weeks after my initial conjuring it up, here we were carrying out my plan (with a few ingenious additions by Mommy!).  The following are some pictures of what we were doing this afternoon…

Arriving at the home

Buttermaking! Having fun shaking

And here comes the visitor... Hi, there

He was much loved

   We were excited to be able to share with the residents of the Grace Christian Home some of what the Lord has given us.  It was obviously a very enjoyable time for everyone and brought so many smiles!  Many told us that it brought back memories from their childhood.

    What a terrific idea, Elizabeth!!! The residents must have been thrilled to have the "farm" brought to them. I can imagine that most of them either grew up on a farm or knew someone who had a farm – what happiness it must have brought them!

    Elizabeth, what a fabulous idea!What excitement and happiness you must of brought the residents. I can’t believe you kept from telling us all about it that evening… but then I guess I never did ask. 🙂 You have done well in training Junior to be sociable and well mannered in public!!!
