...Rylan has someone to go fishing with. I gave it a valiant effort and went with him about 4 times the first year we were married. That was when I thought I had to enjoy everything my husband enjoys...except I never enjoyed it. It didn't take long for me to realize it was OK for us to have different interests and fishing was definitely not something that interested me. Then we moved to NC, got busy with school, Rylan didn't know anyone who fished and fishing just wasn't a priority anymore.

But now Rylan has a new fishing buddy and Rylee couldn't be more thrilled to take my place (or is that me that couldn't be happier because now the pressure is off?). Rylan bought Rylee a nice fishing pole just her size and they are enjoying spending time together exploring this hobby. Other than a few fish like the one pictured below, I can't say the fishing has been very lucrative. Most days they come back with Rylee declaring "we got skunked". But they have loved waking up in the early morning on Rylan's days off, hitting the lakes and rivers and spending some daddy-daughter time together!

They even found a fishing daddy-daughter trio in our long time friends, the Dyrengs! So hurray for rekindling old hobbies!

Then and Now

First Day of Kindergarten
First Day of First Grade

It's hard to believe kindergarten is already a memory for our first born! Crazy! Here is Rylee sporting her new backpack and lunch box on the first day of first grade.
