We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

 Our first few days in Texas were cold and rainy so when the sun finally came out,
it was time for us to go exploring on the back 2/3 of the property.
 We had heard about the dry creek bed that ran like  a raging torrent during last year's floods
and couldn't get over how beautiful it was.
 And beyond that, the meadow....complete with another burn pile waiting for it's demise
and a fire circle, the scene of some family fires it looked like.
 A cross stands at the back of the fence line...
with a story to tell I'm sure,
but a photo op as far as the kids were concerned.
I could imagine a group of teenagers playing soccer on this field
or maybe a game of volleyball,
so much room!
 But then the creek bed called us back...
...loved this old oak tree
which looked so perfect for climbing!
 There are actually three children playing in this picture...
Can you find them all?

 These two have a special bond
and I just love how their heads are bent together
as if they are sharing a special secret.
 It was hot in the sun so we decided to head back to the house
along this path that they had cleared
(you can still see the piles of trees that need to be burned on another day)
and then we were back on the yard!
So much fun!
