It was so good to see him and have family around. You don't realize how much you miss it.

The funny thing for me was getting to know him more as an adult. He's a really great kid (my sister-in-law raised him well). When I first met him he was about 7. The year after my husband and I married and moved east we had him come and visit (I think he was 11 at the time). That's the kid I really remember. That's who I think about when I think about him. Even though we've had lots of visits in between he's still this enthusiastic kid who could chat your ear off (in a good way).
