next in line…


I'm sure he's never thought of himself as being in the middle but in this group he is…

My second brother is just a little younger then me (although still willing to break bones which I'm not).

Another excellent Uncle – I was so proud of him getting his shoes wet on a bitterly cold Chicago Thanksgiving to build his little niece a sandcastle. (That's true 'best uncle' competition spirit – and love!)

Did I mention I’m an only child…


… and that I happen to have 5 brothers.

This is a picture of my eldest brother (in front of a big cloud off of Mount St. Helens – that's cool).

We spent a great deal of time together as kids playing Super Mario, eating chinese food (or mac and cheese if we had to cook). He's turned into a great uncle – he can sit on the floor for hours and play (he's pretty happy to have an excuse to play with the playdough and paints).

I guess I'll have to start a series here – it's a good place to begin!
