And just like that both boys are teenagers!
Ryan's off fishing and swimming in the lake with his best friend in the world.
Isn't that what being thirteen is all about?
Being carefree (yes Ry, you still need to read those three chapters in Hoot before school tomorrow) and happy with your friends?
And maybe bringing your dad along to drive the boat!
Here's to a great first year of teenagerhood Ryan!
I only ask one thing....please go gentle on me...I don't have too many non-gray hairs left!
