Our Audra Lea will be leaving us again tomorrow. She made the trip out with us and has helped us as we adjusted to our new surroundings. She made friends in church and told me my sermons have helped her. Today we took off to Chester and then across the Mississippi River looking for a country café that Chuck Haynes had taken me to way back when. We found it right across from a popcorn factory, it is called Al’s. We had a good lunch and then drove through the foothills of Missouri before crossing back into Illinois to visit the Kaskaskia national landmark. We then drove the back roads into Sparta. She is out with Ebony from church and we put her on a plane tomorrow.
Here are a couple of pictures of Audra enjoying Sparta and our trip to Cousin Alec’s in Chicago.
