‘Grandparents will endure anything’
Connelly and Cameron Cooper and parents Kelly and Chris, Jaxon Hayles and mom Kristi Lee went on Sunday, Kristian and Kendall Lee and mom Kim went on Tuesday. We all returned home on Sunday. Jaxon’s family members from the Conroe area were able to attend for a couple of days.
Following the awards presentation on Saturday afternoon, we all had dinner with Craig Lee at his home. Kristi, Jaxon, Kristian, Connelly, Cameron, Wayne and I spent the night with Craig. It was an enjoyable trip in spite of being out in the heat all day, each day. But, as most grandparents, we will endure anything to see our grandchildren perform what they enjoy doing.
Wanda and Alfred Coats and family members had nice time last week at Garner State Park. Those joining them were Sherri and James Rasco, Wesley and Melanie Rasco, Hayden and Gracie, Kane Coats, Phillip Rasco and Noah Coldiron. James’s sister Joy and children Megan and Matthew made the trip. Wanda Sue reports a very relaxing and enjoyable time.
Gloria and Wilson Kyle were at Longhorn Cavern on Sunday to attend the wedding of their granddaughter Cheryl Kyle to Matthew Whittier. Cheryl is the daughter of Keith and Connie Kyle. Matthew is in the military, stationed at Ft. Hood and will soon be leaving for a tour of duty in Iraq. The Whittiers will make their home in Florence.
Wasn’t the rain nice Monday evening. I’m for more of that. Naturally, I spent all day Monday watering f lower beds that hadn’t been watered sine last Wednesday.
The descendents of the late Professor D.S. Smith, Sr., Dorsie Smith Ferguson Wilson, her sister Alma Gray of Gause and brother John V. Smith of Denver, Colorado and their families celebrated their 21st annual J. Frank and Mollie E. Smith Family Reunion on July 16-17. There was a family cookout on Friday night and then the reunion moved to t he Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center on Saturday. Delores Ferguson Fisher said that both events were a blast.
I was able to attend the Friday night cookout and that fried fish was so good. I enjoyed visiting with the family members and friends of the Smiths. The late Professor Smith has a family to be proud of.
The family wishes to thank all who attended and were so glad to have a place like the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center to have the gathering.
