*the Kansas cousins taking their Paraguayan cousin for a walk holding hands
*showing all the kids our childhood mulberry tree and getting our fingers and faces stained
*trying (and failing) to catch fireflies
*watching my brother and niece jump waves at the beach
*hunting sand dollars with my mom
*my dad and brother going for a round of golf for the first time in years
*picking veggies out of the garden for dinner
It’s just been great to see the next generation of the family together and see my generation as responsible adults. It really has been that long!
This is definitely one of the major challenges going back out overseas. I forget that life back home is passing just as quickly and I really am missing out. But thanks family for giving me so many great reasons to keep coming back! My apartment in São Paulo is at your disposal anytime!
