It’s an honor to have something named after you. I’m proud to say I have a river named after me. My grandsons affectionately call the river close to our home, “Grandma’s River.” And Jeannine’s children call it, “Aunt Joyce’s River.” Now I’m sure the Texas State Legislature is not going to officially change the true name of this river, but in my mind I have a river named after me and it is an honor! At the end of the post we’ll link to a FREE printable guided reading book.

Back on the main land, Grandson #4 discovers the river rocks.

Now this is one serious floating device: an inner toob, a wooden board and a kick board. Watch out! This will be totally awesome!

Let me see! Let me see! Let’s take turns. We can all see.

We need to find some more big rocks to make our dam stronger. Then the fish can live in here.

Yes, we are getting ready for back to school, but it is still summer here in Texas. And we are still enjoying “Grandma’s River”!
Thanks for sharing a day at “Grandma’s River” with me!
