A lot has changed since the first season of Real Housewives. The biggest change is Shane being home. After being injured in the Jucco World Series he was sent home from camp to drive us all crazy for three months of "no exercise." This is a high energy, can't stop moving teenager, not allowed to run, play basketball, lift weights, or do really much of anything. It was the hardest three months ever. The house is full of men. After a heartbreaking run for the playoffs, Matt's season had ended. Shane had friends here, Kara has friends, there's Colton's posse. And now that Colton and Shane wear the same size (not to mention Colton's having turned Shane's room into a mini-suite) — there seems to be a lot of competition for just about everything.
I am happy now that Shane goes back to Arizona in a month, Matt heads out in February, and Kara is applying to UCLA and USC. Colton, Shane and Dad start today (always in early January) to get in shape for baseball. November and December, you give your body a complete rest. Matt has been riding his bile 10 miles a day and he is in amazing shape, still wears his high school size. My boys are very into clothes, but their Dad isn't. He is very conservative. Shane coming home with earrings sent Dad into orbit ... but he does look good in them.
