Post image for A Boy and His Net: FREE printable book

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.

A day at “Grandma’s River” required lots of sunscreen.

Let’s explore the island. Miss Enigma yells, “Wait for me boys!”

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.

Splashy! Splash!

Wow! Look at this cool casting net I found.

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

A boy and his net can spend the whole day together.

Aunt Joyce look at my hand prints in the sand.

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!

Having a river named after you is pretty awesome – I’m afraid I can’t compete with that! Great photos and book – what a wonderful keepsake!

Oh and I still call the main port in Melbourne ‘Pa’s Port’ because as a child my Grandpa used to take us to visit and watch the ships and for the longest time I really thought he owned it! Grandparents are maigcal!
