At the Creyers, Elizabeth spent a quiet morning at home whilst her husband and grandson were at work and school. She did some cleaning, took a nap, and then woke up to a phone call from Jacynth Eddison, who’d just got home from school with some difficult maths homework, and her parents are busy, and did Mrs Creyer think she might be able to help? Jacynth I think is feeling the strain of being the eldest of six kids, and has made friends with several grown-ups who she’s not related too, so whilst I would usually find it weird for a teen to call an unrelated adult for homework help, this made perfect sense in Jacynth’s case.
Elizabeth got off the phone about the time Caleb got home from school, with Jacynth’s little brother Reuben in tow. Elizabeth was part of the welcome wagon on the first day at the Eddison’s, and played a lengthy chess game with Reuben, telling him how her grandson Caleb was just about to start Y2 with Reuben, and would he be his friend, and Reuben seems to have taken it to heart. The boys played cops and robbers on the front porch, and when Caleb had to go inside to nap, Elizabeth took over entertaining the guest.
Oliver returned from work and also had a nap, getting up about the same time as Caleb and making dinner for his grandson and his grandson’s friend, whilst Elizabeth studied, since she wasn’t hungry yet. The topic of conversation over dinner seemed to be Caleb’s recently deceased mother, who hasn’t haunted yet.
After dinner, Reuben headed home, and Caleb asked his granddad to help him with his homework, and then everyone headed to bed.
