We picked up some new baby chicks right before we left for New York. Jim's associate at work and his children took care of them while we were out of town.
Jim told the kids before we left that the baby chicks loved to be held and sung to. He told them that the chicks' favorite song was "Up, Up in the Sky" which he sang to them. Jim asked the kids if they could remember the song. They shook their heads with a look of concern on their faces. We assured them that any song would be just fine. Their dad reported to us later that his kids held and sang to those chicks every single day! They would go out in the garage to check on them often, even in the middle of the night! I wish I could have witnessed it.
