Two Guys and a Girl

*SWR4956-2

There is no question about it, as my son, Matthew, says on a regular basis - "Sarah sure is rakin' them in."  Of course, Sarah denies this observation from her brother. 



*SWR5065-2

But I have to tell ya, having been a 16 year old girl once myself, I don't recall having quite this much fun, or being surrounded by testosterone on a regular basis.

Sarah has a boyfriend.  As in "he's mine, not yours - boyfriend."  His name is Walker.  He's the one in the red shirt.  Sarah also has a best friend.  As in "he's my friend and only a friend and we like to hang out buddy style kind of friend."  His name is Ryan.  He is in the white shirt.



*SWR5014-2a

We've tried to tell Sarah that this creates an awkward situation.  Sarah doesn't buy it.  



SWR5058-2

We tell her that if she is in a relationship with a guy, that hanging out and going out with other guys, even if they are just "friends" is probably a "no-no."  She still doesn't buy it.

Of course, she is only 16, so who cares, right? - Maybe Ryan.

Sarah has never had her heart broken.  Neither has Walker.  And from what I gather, Ryan has never been in a relationship where his heart was anywhere, so he's safe - for the moment.  I think.  



SWR5018-2

Unless, of course, he likes Sarah more than just a "friend" and then we have issues.  But they're still just kids.  Kids with heart.  Kids with Soul.  Fun Kids.  Good Kids.



SWR4939-2a

Sarah doesn't buy it.



SWR4941-2a

So, the other day, Sarah had Walker and Ryan over at the same time.  Awkward.  But very interesting.



SWR4948-2a

And fun.



SWR4958-2a

They played the Wii and Guitar Hero, and then watched a movie and hung out - together.

 

SWR4960-2a

They let me take a lot of pictures of them being silly - together.

Walker made it perfectly clear -  "she's mine, not yours, and don't you forget it ... Ryan."



SWR5034-2

Of course, Ryan just kept smilin' and making faces and giving me the thumbs up.  I don't think Walker was buyin' it.



SWR5039-2

Go get 'em Ryan!  



SWR5055-2

They had dinner with us too.  Big Bear made a chicken and shrimp alfredo thing with a salad and blackberry cobbler and it was delicious.  Growing boys they are and everyone but Sarah woofed it down. Ryan had seconds.



SWR5027-2

The thing about this funny scenerio is this - I really like Walker and I really like Ryan.  We're talking 2 great guys here.  I am proud of them both.  They get good grades and care about their future. 



SWR5033-2

And it is obvious to us that they both care about Sarah too.  Such a dilemma for a 16 year old girl.



SWR5040-2

Walker wants to be a Neuro-surgeon.



SWR4998-2

Ryan hasn't decided yet, but he is big into Baseball and he plays a mean Saxophone.



SWR4940-2

Sarah wants to be a cellular biologist.  As in "cells" in the body, not cellular phones.  ha ha.



SWR5031-2

I don't know where this bunch is going, but I know for sure they are going up, and I do believe that they will be lifelong friends.  I just have a gut feeling.  And since we've drilled it into our children's heads that they have to be choosy about the friends they keep, as for Sarah, I do believe that these 2 are keepers.
