Our boy Luke is off to middle school now. Hard to believe, but he is 6ft tall, 227#, and still only 11yo! Seems like just yesterday we were welcoming him into the world after several tough years of trying to start a family, and one very devastating miscarriage for us. But that has all passed now, and we are so proud of all his accomplishments. His grades have been outstanding, his interest in fishing is second to none, and he is very accomplished in fly tying. His intelligance, patience, and common sense is amazing for his age, so we couldn't be prouder. He gets rewarded for his efforts in fishing time between my wife, grandma, and myself. I just cant say enough about him! Wife snapped a pic of our proud moment at the bus stop on day one. To our surprise, the bus driver was the same he has had so far, and she informed us the route has changed, so she will be continuing to see us now until he graduates or starts driving. Awesome!
My youngest boy Will is off to college, first day is the 25th, he's 6' 4" barefoot and makes me look like a small guy. they grow up fast, too fast but that's how the ball rolls. we blink twice and before we know it we are old men, enjoy him while you can because before long he too will be gone.
