SAWYER JAMES EGAN born 8/26/08

Yippee! We have a new grandson who made his entrance last night at 8:46 p.m. in Nashville, TN. Mother and baby are doing great. We are so excited to have another boy for our football team! Sawyer weighed in at a healthy 9' 12" and was 21 and 1/2" in length. He has a full head of RED hair. Jack has visited his baby brother and mommy and given kisses.


Today John and I returned from San Antonio where we helped Patrick move into his new house in the Alamo city. He started his new job monday as an Art teacher at Alamo Heights Junior School. He has 7th and 8th graders and teaches in a beautiful art room at AHJS. Here are a few pictures of his new place.

Last weekend I flew to Atlanta, GA to gather with my college suitemates to celebrate our 40th anniversary of meeting each other at the Branscomb Quad at Vanderbilt University in 1968. WOW! How is that possible when we are only slightly over 40 now.....?

It was 4 days of laughing, relaxing, shopping, laughing, eating, drinking, and more laughing. Only 2 men were allowed into our inner sanctum....Kevin and Ben.


We were so proud when Mitchell took his firefighter's oath and received his badge last wednesday night. He is now a proud member of the Houston Fire Department. It was a great night of celebration of his hard work and perseverance.

Proud parents!

HFD Firefighter, Adam Kibler (Pine Forest Elementary classmate!) came to congratulate Mitchell.

Test run for Nashville Egan's

Hi Everyone,

This is my test run in adding to the Egan Family Blog. Here is a picture of our new car and a couple other misc. pictures from the past month.

Hope it works so we can add new pics soon.
Love, Scott (& Jen & Jack)

Jack at two years.

Jack is an aspiring fireman like his Uncle Mitch. Everyday he wakes up and puts on this hat and wears it most of the day.

2008 Backyard Olympics

Today we hosted the second Backyard Olympics for Conner and his compadres. We tried this in 2004 and it was so much fun we did it again this year and had a blast! The torch Run, the parade of families, the events and the medal ceremony took place under sunny skies.

Olympic dancing and medals for Conner

There's no place like SPACE !

Yesterday Conner and I went to see the Star Wars exhibit at Space Center Houston with Becky and her kids and Kara and her kids. The Star Wars part was OK.... but they had fun at all the space activities and Daredevil Island.
