But Peyson is just one of many grandparents who have moved to Central Texas, said Debbie Edwards, manager of the Lions Club Park Senior Center in Killeen.
"The Killeen area is affordable, it's got new hospitals, the military (and) it's centrally located, and it's a good place to stay," said Edwards.
Edwards said that's common of her military grandparent center members; seniors tend to be happier when they have a defined purpose in life and can be a stabilizing force for children when their parents can't be.

Debbie Edwards is manager of the Lions Club Park Senior Center in Killeen. She said she also sees a void in the kind of housing seniors need.
"I feel there's a shortage of senior housing in the community," Edwards said. "There's a big need."
Many people in the military are bringing their aging parents or grandparents with them to the area to help them manage while spouses are away on deployments, Edwards said.

"Seniors like a peaceful, secure, affordable place to live," Edwards said.
Edwards said if she was looking for housing in the area, an independent living facility would appeal to her.

And an idyllic representation - with some artistic license by Killeen artist Debbie Edwards - of the Hay Branch School built in 1884 is captured in a 50-foot-wide, 8½–foot-high mural on a hallway wall in the Westcliff Road school.
"I live right down the road from the school and there's a real sense of history," said Edwards, whose sons Aubrey and Jimmy attended Hay Branch Elementary."I know some of the founding families that went to the old Hay Branch school."
It took Edwards nearly five months to complete the mural of a one-room schoolhouse reminiscent of the old Hay Branch schoolhouse.
"As I was working on it, students would stop, watch and ask questions," said Edwards, senior citizen coordinator for the Bob Gilmore Senior Center."I used that as a chance to do mini art lessons."
The focal point of her three-panel work, which was com-pleted in October, is the inside of a classroom.
Standing before a blackboard is a teacher who has written 'Welcome to Hay Branch Elementary' on the first day of school.
