Our Houston kids have been taking sailing lessons and or now qualified to take sailing boats out in the Gulf of Mexico. They have one more class where they go out for three days and so Mama and I went down to watch the boys. We used to call it baby setting but not anymore because one of them is eighteen and the other one is fifteen. I thank my son was using that as an excuse to get us down here, as if we needed an excuse we would come down at the drop of a hat. Our kids have leased a 31 foot sailboat for a year and so our first night there we took the boat out into Galveston bay near Kemah Texas. The eighteen year old was at football practice and was unable to go with us on the boat, it was only about 20 minutes from where the kids live to Kemah where the boat is docked, so after our daughter-in-law got of work she met up with us. We had supper then got on board the boat then off we sailed. We had such a good time and watching my son and daughter-in-law who was raised in the Texas panhandle along ways away from water handle the boat and sails. We would sail with the wind and against the wind; they had no problems handling the boat. My fifteen year old grandson was an excellent mate handling the sails when his dad told him what to do he was more than happy to do it.
