On our second to the last final segment of our trip to Canada, we’ll be heading to Houston, Texas in about 30 minutes. We’ll rent a car and drive to Conroe, 45 minutes north. Courtney, Mike and Hailey are moving there TODAY (December 14th) for Mike’s business. The oil industry is booming in Texas, contrary to Alberta, where politicians are responding to the powerful environmental lobbyists and shutting in Canadian oil. Hailey said a tearful “good bye”to her classmates yesterday.
Con is finally surfacing from a three-week cold-flu siege that attacked him almost as soon as we arrived. The humidity in Texas ought to fix him up completely!
Mid November, we entered the crazy, wild, and wonderful world of grandkids and loving every single exhausted moment!
November and December this year have been extraordinary with the precious time we’ve had with family. My brother Doug and sister-in-law Merrilee from Toronto visited Big Sky, and together we toured Andalusian region Spain and even had a little sail. We flew to The Netherlands for a family-packed visit with Con’s large family. The rest of this year we will be surrounded by our four daughters, four son-in-laws, five grandkids, and three grand dogs.
