Spacious sunny home in lovely neighborhood near museums, universities, the Texas Medical Center and entertaining (ballet, opera, theater).

Introducing

My husband Tom and I are retired. He spent most of his career with Shell Oil Company. At retirement I was an assistant professor in the University of Texas School of Public Health. Our retirement projects have involved some writing and research projects. We are now interested in family vacations that would involve our three grandsons and their parents, especially in the United Kingdom. We live in Houston, Texas, where we are active in a church community, including a band program. We are open to hospitality visits at various times of the year and have enjoyed such exchanges with families in the past in exchanges.

About Our Home

Spacious family two-story home with open kitchen/dining and living area, as well as a study and computer setups. Homes in this well-established neighborhood are proudly maintained with year-round flowers in our moderate winters (60s-70s). Our downstairs includes a bedroom with bath and study/bedroom which provides a separate and private area for guests. A piano and other musical instruments are proud possessions here, as well as an electronic keyboard. Children are welcome. The dining/kitch living area is quite open and extends to a sunroom and patio for outdoor dining. We can make arrangements for a vehicle depending on insurance requirements. Cleaning services are provided on a weekly basis, along with yard maintenance.

We would like to take grandsons and adult children on a family vacation, preferably the United Kingdom, particularly Scotland. The grandsons are well behaved and eager to learn about the world. Both my husband and I are experienced travelers and home exchangers.
