I promised you an update on what Kinsey’s been doing the last year, and I will (in greater detail) tomorrow. Today however, I’d like to show you the scenery on the way to BiG (Brookwood in Georgetown), the fantastic day program she attends four days a week for adults with cognitive delays.
I count the 20 minute commute to BiG as one of the best parts of my day. Even though we are a mere 24 miles from downtown Austin, there are still parts of Texas that have retained the bucolic countryside that I have grown to love. Every day Kinsey and I see horses, cows, goats, and the ever present Texas Longhorns grazing in the open fields that border the roadway.
Our conversation about cows and horses provides a brief but welcome respite from the non-stop prattling about the FIVE (yes I said 5) American Girl dolls that are now living in our house. Seriously.
The recent rains have greened up our drought stricken terrain and rejuvenated the sunflowers that are once again flourishing along the thoroughfare. I should also point out that this particular roadway is a magnet for cyclists (Kent included) as it has about 25 miles of well maintained blacktop and a generous bike lane. (On the weekends there are probably more cyclists than cars or cows!)
These are just a few of the photos that I snapped the last two days. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I thought I’d spare you a few. Words that is, definitely not pictures!
