As the family tours Welch, each member evaluates the new hometown. The townโ€™s river is as dirty as its trees and buildings. None of the inhabitants welcomes the Walls family. The authorโ€™s mother says โ€œGosh, things have gone downhill a little bit since we were here last (TGC, p.139).โ€

โ€œDownhillโ€ aptly describes the direction the family has taken. โ€œDownhillโ€ indicates a destination physically below oneโ€™s previous location. The word can also signify an emotionally lower frame of mind.

As life for the Walls family worsens, the story-line continues its theme of taking responsibility for oneโ€™s life.
