When we walked in the door to find Grandma and Grandpa happily greeting us I told them that he did not stop talking about Grandpa on the way there. I could see my Dad's eyes light up and he quickly bent down and gave little E a kiss on the cheek and greeted him with the usual, "Hi big boy!". It made me so proud that he knew who his Grandpa was. Living out of town is tough and that is one thing that worried me - that he may play strange to his Grandparents and Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. But this wasn't really the case. He hugged my leg a few minutes but before we knew it he was off running around the house and soon enough was climbing up on Grandpa's knee for a bouncy horsey ride.
It makes me so happy to see my Dad relaxing and enjoying his Grandchildren and even happier to see that little E already idolizes him.
This particular visit he watched Grandpa intently. We watched him working in the barn, driving the tractor and when Grandpa wasn't in sight, little E recited his favourite farm words over and over. Grandpa. Barn. Tractor. Grandpa. Combine. Neigh. Moo. Grandpa. Meow. Hay.
