Boating with the Boys!




Tyson’s good friend Lewis (far right) is leaving on Friday for college at the University of Hawaii @ Manoa on a football scholarship.  Since he is the first of the boys to leave, they decided to go boating together last weekend.  My brother Kevin (aka Cool Uncle Kevin) took them up to Jordanelle Reservoir for a day of boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, etc.  They had a great time!  They were exhausted and sunburned (tan) when they returned home.  I can’t believe these boys are all starting college in a few short weeks.  From L to R:  Joe, Sean, Tyson, Andrew and Lewis.  Tyson is the only other one (besides Lewis) in the picture to be going out of state to college.  Joe is attending the University of Utah on a baseball scholarship, Sean will be attending the University of Utah and will play football, and Andrew will also be attending the University of Utah , but on a golf scholarship.  Their other good friend Matt moved back to Tennessee after school got out, but will be coming in town for a visit this Saturday.  They are planning one last boating excursion this weekend for Matt.  He will be attending Sewanee University of the South in the fall on a baseball scholarship.  Fun times!  I can’t believe they are all so grown up!  (Well, I use that term rather loosely!)

**PS – Thank you so much for the comments and emails regarding Cheyenne!  It’s been so sad the last few days.  I keep looking behind me, or around the house wondering where she is.  She was always underfoot…so it’s weird.  But, she isn’t suffering anymore!
