Creating posts takes time, something we have very little of. But then, we enjoy what our family shares with us so much.

Janet and I went to New Braunfels this past weekend and worked on Grandma's house. Sue and Larry brought mattresses to the house and left them made up with linens and everything. It was nice to arrive Friday night to a bed. And then they came over Saturday morning and worked all day with us. Larry gave up when he had to go pick up their grandson, but Sue stayed until we took her home at 9PM. We really couldn't have finished what we did without them. We filled the bed of their pickup with bags of clothes from the master bedroom closet and took those to the women's shelter that Grandma tried to support. We sorted out a large pile for an eventual yard sale at Sue and Larry's place.

Mom and I got up Sunday morning and drove into San Antonio to attend sacrament meeting with Beth and Grandma Frazer. Eric was there, too. The testimony meeting had several tender moments. It was good to be there with Beth and Mom.

After church we went to see Phil's new apartment. It is great. He lives across the street from the historic King William district near downtown San Antonio. The apartment complex is reserved for elderly and disabled clients, so it is very quiet and perfect for Phil. The apartment is large and is on the ground floor. His front door is on a courtyard. Many of the residents have lived there for years, so there are live plants and flowers everywhere. He has a bedroom, bath, kitchen, living area, walk-in closet, and another storage room. He seems really happy to be in his own place.

We also had a chance to stop in and visit with Grandpa Kirk and Linda. We enjoyed the visit.

Next week I'll be in New Orleans all week for a meeting. Maybe I'll post some pictures from the river city.
