The Lexington Contingent

Since the twins and Evie B are up in Nantucket for the next few weeks, we decided to drive up to Lexington, Texas for the day so that we could visit with our relatives the Lewis's. Our nephew Rob is there this week before returning to West Point, N.Y. where he is a cadet.

Rob has always been a terrific kid and unassumingly very smart. His mom Cinda

is an Aggie engineer who opted out of the business world for a while to home school Rob and Bevie. She's done a great job. Rob and Beverly are the pay back for years of caring responsible parenting.

While in High School Rob was active in church and the community and he was industrious enough to be awarded the Eagle Scout level in the Boy Scouts of America.

Because of family history, Rob was destined to go to Texas A & M just like his Mom and Dad and Grandad on both his Mom's and Dad's sides of the family had. Heck, he was even born in College Station!

But Rob is a self starter. He decided to apply to West Point so that he could serve his country better. Of course he was accepted. He just completed his plebe year and pulled down a 3.5 GPA which would have been even higher if he was a fighter instead of a lover..... :-)

Little Bev was at work in nearby Giddings for a good part of the time we were in Lexington. She came home in time for dinner and, as she has been all her life, she was a pleasure to be around. She is so well grounded for a 17 year old. She is normal and nice aunque being beautiful. Just look at her.

Lee ( The Dad )

came home from work wet through 'cos his car's A/C quit working and went for a 3.5 mile run in the 94 degree temp. I remember when I used to do that. Sigh.

Cinda is a good cook and made all the dinner from ingredients she had on hand. The short notice of having guests didn't throw her a bit. We had home made salsa and chips followed by home made chimichangas and frijoles con arroz. Lovely.

Here's a couple of group shots.......

And one more of Little Bev

Other than the market being down 387 points, we had a great day!
