This morning, Joe headed in to go visiting, but he discovered that there
was a problem with the alternator. He had planned to stop at the
mechanic anyway to check on Lenell’s vehicle. They had discovered that
a fuel line was stopped up, and they were able to fix that. Joe left
our vehicle with the mechanic and went on to Belleville to go visiting.
Joe came home for lunch. The mechanic called this afternoon and said
that our vehicle was finished. Joe went back in to get it.
Some girls from the Belleville church came out to the house this
morning. Six came around 10:30, and two more got here about noon. They
helped me around the house for a little bit. Some of them did the
dishes; one of them swept, and a couple of them cleaned some rugs.
Then, they played outside with the boys. They came back in and played
with Bonnie’s toys. They left about 12:45 to head back to Belleville
for a youth activity this afternoon.
Gilbert and Danny were busy too. They helped clean rugs outside. When
they were done with the buckets, Gilbert and Danny both climbed inside a
bucket. It was hot today. Bonnie got toted and passed around all
morning. She got fussy around noon. I picked her up, and she went
right to sleep.
After naps, the boys went back outside to play.
Tonight after the boys were in bed, we heard Danny talking to Bonnie’s
baby doll. He said, “Be still. I don’t want to hear nother word from you!”
Joe, Laura, Gilbert, Danny, and Bonnie
