Flat Jaden in Katy, Texas

Awhile back, we received a letter in the mail from one of our grandsons and his teacher at school. It had a picture in it called "flat Jaden". It also had instructions to take "flat
Jaden" to some places where we live and take his picture. Today, I took my "flat Jaden" and my camera and found some fun places in Katy, Texas. I will put together a packet tomorrow and send it off to Jaden's school, so that he can share with his class where-in-the-world "flat Jaden" went. I taped my "flat Jaden" onto a black piece of paper. Look close, you can see him in each picture- except not in the Bluebonnet photos. (I am just sending those as something interesting about Texas. I am also going to go get some postcards and something about the rodeo and put those with these pics. Ash- tell Jaden, that hopefully they should be there by the end of the week.)
What a fun project.

Old Katy was known for it's large oak trees, a grain mill, rice fields, and the railroad depot. Old downtown Katy is not very large. It has some small antique shops, gift shops, a hardware store, various boutiques and restuarants. The city of (new) Katy has grown into a large suburb of Houston. Katy is about 25 miles west of Houston. There are five high schools. (The mascot for the Katy high school is the Tigers.)
Here is a link that gives a brief history and some info. about Katy-
