The Robinson Family boys have also returned from the annual spring fishing trip at Lake Powell. Suffice it to say, the company was great, the food divine, and the fishing meager. Despite doing little damage to the fish population I kept busy changing lures for Tyrel and taking hikes up out of the canyon.
The trip was rejuvenating for me. I am reminded of a quote by Luis Marden who wrote, “Fishing is solace… the opposite of war, a civilized, gentle, and healing occupation.” I wouldn’t mind trying to be a sport fisherman for a living, but then it probably wouldn’t be fun (I’d still like to try).
The fairer half of the family (Amy and Erin) reveled in the spoils of the tropics during a visit to Hawaii. I have a personal theory that the amount of fun you have is directly proportional to the degree to which you were sunburned. Having said that, Amy had more fun than Erin. Thanks Stacy and Jarod.Tyrel and the Mountain West little league continue to have a “growing” season. They are just shy of the half way through a season with a heady 2 wins. I contend boys learn life lessons from sports. Despite playing on very experienced teams the last two seasons, Tyrel is now learning good sportsmanship and how to help his younger teammates. These experiences will pay dividends at some meaningful point in his life.
