My sister is going to take over blogging for me while I am in China. Apparently China doesn’t allow blogger to work, so I’ll send an e-mail to Wendy whenever possible and she’ll post for me. For our first practice I wanted to tell you about my son’s first bass tournament! There were fourteen boats entered in the tournament and his boat came in fourth place! Of course he was the only child entered in the contest!
A good friend named Thanos has become Brennan’s fishing buddy. He’s an amazing man that we met at the lake in the Fall. He’s taken Brennan fishing about three times a month since then. He LOVES fishing as much as Brennan does (which is hard to believe). Thanos was a fishing guide and truly knows what he is doing- so they often catch fish! They have gone in the pouring rain, the super hot days, the cold days, and everything in between. They often go fishing for about six hours…. Although their record was about eleven hours! It’s a win win for all of us! Brennan is super happy and Thanos’ wife is happy she isn’t having to fish every weekend anymore.
So Thanos called the director of the tournament to see if there was an age limit. When he found out that there wasn’t, he signed them up right away! They woke up the original scheduled date only to find out it was rained out. They practiced the weekend before the new date by getting up at 4:45 AM and going to the same lake to check it out. They are pretty serious about this fishing business! It’s amazing how easily Brennan wakes up at 4:45 AM to go fishing but has a hard time waking up at 7:00 AM to go to school. J
They had so much fun, and we are so thankful for Thanos!
