On Friday afternoon, though, Tim arrived to spend his vacation time with us. It was his first time to drive the twelve-hour route between Albuquerque and Temple, and he gained a new-found appreciation for all those round-trips Dan and I made in preparation for our move. In fact, he's saying, "Next time I'm flying!"

Saturday morning we picked up where we left off, and had breakfast together at a local cafe. Ahh, that just felt RIGHT! Today we're planning a picnic lunch at the lake. As for the rest of the week, we have made plans to go see Chris, Kelsey, Clara and Robert on Thursday; we've talked about possibly driving up to Waco to see their zoo one day; we'll probably attend the fish-fry that is on our church calendar next Saturday; and, one day, Tim wants to go, by himself, to explore the Austin area. I hope his GPS brings him back!
(Note regarding previous post: Perhaps you can tell, by all the activities we have planned, that the cortisone injections have worked wonders. My knees are no longer hurting, and there's a smile on my face.)
