We are at Grandma's house in Lake Arthur. Sakura is knitting. We are visiting with our dad, three aunts, uncle, and Grandma and her caretaker. 


I just love the live oaks and Spanish moss here. This is Grandma's yard.

Aunt CaCoo made gumbo. I took a photo because it's awesome and it's Louisiana gumbo, the authentic stuff.

We arrived in Lake Arthur. Grandma is doing better than we expected. She's up and talking with us. Without her glasses on, she didn't recognize Sakura (asked who she was) but she tells old stories and seems pretty aware. Sakura sang to her. It was beautiful to watch Grandma sing along.

Sakura and I went to see our mom's college roommate today. While on the way we learned that our Grandma wasn't doing well and decided to get plane tickets to go see her tomorrow.

This evening we had dinner with her boys and her ex-husband Jebby.

I taught tonight and we discussed 3D printers. I made a knitting needle before class just to see if I remembered how to design and print with it. I did!
