I was able to golf three times. On my last round I was paired with two woman, one of whom played on the European and LPGA tour and now works as a golf pro. We both played the white tees and she beat me by at least 20 strokes. I've got my work cut out for me this summer.

Treva got home from school and barely had time to unpack before jumping on a flight to go to Athens, Greece. She travelled with two of her sorority sisters from CU. They visited Athens and several islands on their adventure. She's pictured above standing in front of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a theater built in A.D. 161, which is right outside the entrance to the Acropolis.
