Transitions commence new adventures. Make 'em last…

My Nephew

Exactly one month to the day after I departed the US to teach English in South Korea nearly 15 months ago, my sister gave birth to Sawyer and I officially became an uncle. It wasn’t until just a week ago that I returned for a visit and was actually able to meet and play with Sawyer face-to-face for the first time. My nephew is absolutely wonderful and it was so much fun watching and playing with him in Grandma’s backyard – a place that certainly fosters many fond memories from my own childhood.

With freedom to roam and play granted, oranges and dirt soon became Sawyer’s new best friends…

…In addition, Grandma’s “Miracle-Gro lemon”, the largest lemon I’ve ever seen.

Sawyer and Grandma certainly had a great time, and it was a joy to see them together.

It was great seeing him for the first time and I look forward to watching him grow. Who knows what he will become, perhaps a…

...professional football player?
