The next Tiger Woods

Zach got 2nd place in his freshman/JV golf tournament yesterday! It’s only his 3rd tournament for the year and we were hoping he would “settle down” and get used to the whole tournament atmosphere, so hopefully this is a good sign of more to come :)

Not ANOTHER birthday...they just keep coming!

Holy Cow – Zach turned 15 over the weekend. I can’t even believe it….I had a small meltdown on the first day of school this year, but that was nothing compared to this! It’s unbelievable to me to realize that after this year he will only be home for 3 more years before leaving for school and we’ve already started getting college info in the mail…where does the time go? He has been dying for a ping pong table so we got that for him and I have a suspicion that it will be the demise of many an adult who forget that they have become “limited” in their older age and are easily goaded by the boys…:)

Run, deer, run...

So Zach went hunting with his dad and shot his first deer for the season. I wasn’t too sure how he would do, as some years he’s more into it than others, but he was super fired up about it, so I guess this is an “on” year. When my comment on the subject was “Poor deer” I received a speech about the necessities of hunting to avoid overpopulation...from a 15 year old, no less. I’m still rooting for the deer. My guys seem to have gone hunting crazy, as we are also the proud subscribers to the Outdoor Channel now, and let me tell you, that is a real treat. An entire channel devoted to killing anything that moves. Run, deer, run…
