Over the River and through the Woods.......

From Grandmother's house we went. So, it sounds better when we go TO Grandma's house. We cross 2 or 3 rivers and pass trees on the way to Grandmother's house. I wouldn't exactly call them "woods" but it's as close as we get in Central & South Texas.

Today was extremely quiet at Grandma's house. It was nice. She got a package from fed-ex from a sweet friend who lost her husband 2 years ago. It was a package of thank-you notes and a journal with pen so she can write to Bill in it each night. She will be such a comfort for Ruth in the days, weeks, and years to come.

The girls took Grandma for a walk today. The lake has been lowered to allow clean up of trash from storms earlier this year. It's a constant level lake (normally), so they have the ability to raise and lower the lake. Most of our lakes are man-made expansions of rivers. They got home & told me they'd walked on the bottom of the river! They had a fish scale that was at least 1" in diameter, some pretty shells, and told me of fish skeletons and a shell they'd opened with something still living inside! Sounds like they had a good science lesson today!

I wanted to ask if any of you are going to visit with Ruth over the next few weeks or weekends, if you could e-mail me or Phil to let us know. My e-mail is and Phil's is That way we will know to NOT go visit that weekend. Let me clarify, since that sounds like we DON'T want to see you! LOL! What I mean is we'd rather go when she doesn't have other company. We need to do things here, but I know it will be hard for Phil to not go see his mom. Knowing someone else is there will be helpful.

Thanks again to all of you who have called, sent cards, and attended the service yesterday.

Now to get 2 little munchkins to bed!
