Trying to maintain cognitive function

Grandparents Who Babysit Are Less Likely to Develop Alzheimer’s
A few weeks ago we hosted a going-away party for one of Melissa's students.
He has embarked on extended trip to Columbia, of which he is a native, to work on an indigenous language.
(This is what Melissa and her students do - work on documentation & revitalization of indigenous languages.)

Anyway, when we offered to host the going-away party, both the student & his wife were concerned:
You know there will be LOTS of children attending?
Are you SURE you want to do this???
Well, "YES", we replied.
... and there were LOTS of children attending - aged about 18 months to 12 years.
'Twas a delight!

We do our best to encourage son & daughter-in-law to let us sit for grandson, Hunter.
We've accumulated a LOT of baby stuff!
So far we've been quite happy with this arrangement... BUT wish we could do it more!
(We mention this at every opportunity!)
