Grandpa & Me

My grandfather came for a visit a couple of days ago. It was a nice break to the routine and gave us an excuse to take the afternoon of of schoolwork.
My grandfather became a widow, almost 2 years ago, and has found it hard at times being away from family, so he goes visiting, or on holidays. This is my thinking anyhow.
He was down this time because he had to see an eye specialist (due to a slight oil burn on his eye) but all seems to be going well and apart from that he is in as good health as you would expect for someone of his age. While he was here, he counted up his great-grandchildren and they numbered at 10.
It was good to see him and he seems to have plenty of life left in him yet, plus he has planned a trip to New Zealand for October.
My sister, who was driving him around between appointments, also stopped in to visit. She is 6 months pregnant with her first kid and is only really just starting to show.
