My Mother's Autobiography

I found this autobiography my mother wrote, probably as a school assignment in the 3rd or 4th grade. Today would be her 94th birthday.

Daydreams of a Young Girl

Here are a few poems my mother wrote when she was 15. The title on the front of the little book she put together was "Daydreams of a Young Girl."

My Cousin Beverly

Beverly with her husband Tracy and children Shannon and Julie

The last 4 pictures are of Beverly, my sister Margaret, and me. Beverly was closer in age than my other cousins so I usually spent time with her when I visited my aunt in Raymondville. She was the coolest person I knew and let me hang out with her, even letting me go on a date with her one time. I also visited her at Baylor once and stayed in her dorm room.

Disney World

Here are some pictures from a trip my daughter and I took to Disney World many years ago. This was probably our 4th or 5th trip there but the first time we went together as adults, and instead of me taking pictures of her she took pictures of me. The last picture was taken by me of my daughter on a human gyroscope.
