I see I’ve let another 3 weeks pass by without posting on the blog. These final few weeks of our home assignment have gone by quickly and with so many miles and so many things to do that I totally forgot to post anything.
At this point, we’re in McAllen, TX and have one day here (Thursday) before joining up with our teammates (Bryan and Lori) early Friday morning for a caravan trip back home. It will be a long day on Friday and the weather has promised to be rainy and windy with Harvey out in the Gulf apparently making a Texas landfall Friday not too far from here. We should be ok, but we may get a bit wet that morning. We’ll see.
Tuesday of this week started with a 5 hour drive from Dallas to San Antonio. Today (Wednesday) held a 4 hour drive from San Antonio to McAllen. Since our hosts in McAllen were busy working into the early evening, we have some extra hours to burn so we decided to take a quick visit to downtown San Antonio and re-visit the Alamo which we last visited when we first moved to Mexico in September 2004. Wow. 13 years ago. The boys were very young then and Dayton didn’t remember visiting. I suppose that’s something of a sin in Texas. To not remember the Alamo. Oh well. He remembers it now.
