I had to look up the last time we left town overnight, and it has been almost a YEAR! I actually wrote this post during our trip last September:
Since my mother-in-law lives with us and she is wheelchair-bound, it is very difficult to coordinate out-of-town trips these days. Tomorrow, we are headed to the Houston area for a few days of R & R with the kids. My mother-in-law’s helper will be staying at our house to help out. One stop during our trip that I am really looking forward to is seeing NASA for the first time. My son started asking about it recently, and we promised to make a trip during the summer. Since summer is almost over, we decided that there was no time like the present!
I had no idea how much stuff they have to do at NASA. From the website, it looks like a lot of entertainment, including various theaters, tours, galleries, and rides. I’m sure we will take lots of pictures during our time there.
My in-laws (wife’s dad and stepmom) are very sweet and I have always appreciated the fact that they enjoy books as much as we do, or perhaps more, if that is possible. Pam’s stepmom is in the midst of working on a young adult novel, and my father-in-law wrote a Christian-themed novel years ago. Needless to say, they are both highly intelligent.
On a side note, I think my wife is the smartest person that I know. I’m not sure why I wanted you to know that, but she truly is. I can’t imagine anyone else that I would rather have teaching my children. She is well-versed in so many different areas that it boggled the mind sometimes.
We will be staying in Pearland for the next few days, and sightseeing around Houston. If anyone in that area wants to meet us for lunch, let me know. I don’t plan on writing for a few days, but I am always up for some company or to meet a new friend.
I look forward to sharing some family-themed posts when I return next week!
