Our Home in San Antonio, Texas
We moved to San Antonio Texas from LaJolla California and while my husband worked at the Army Institute for Surgical Research, I joined the faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center. We initially intended to move on at the end of 3 years, but instead my husband joined me on the faculty and we raised all 3 children there before returning to New York City. We had a Texas ranch house built in the 1950s, with wonderful shade trees and lots of space for our family. This sketch was made from a photo taken during the winter - and our live oak tree still has leaves. When we moved to Texas I learned for the first time that live oak trees drop their leaves in the spring instead of the fall. We lived in this house for 18 happy years.
