Uncle Eric

Eric just finished his first year of law school and is living with us for the summer. He has a job with the city attorney and is doing research for his professor, but he says the real reason he decided to come to LA is to spend time with the kids and get to know them better. I was a little surprised, honestly, but it’s worked out really well. There is nothing more important to me than family, so it was really nice to see that Eric feels that way too (I think everyone in my family feels that way).

Celebrating Eric getting an A+…


We did a lot of celebrating this summer. First for his good grades, then for the law schools he was accepted to for transfer. Always somthing to celebrate with Eric around.

Anyway, Damon is a big fan. He would come home from daycare saying “Wrestle with Eric!”

Sharing cookies and telling secrets…

Playing basketball…

Riley is a fan too. Eric is (very patiently) teaching her how to play chess. He even lets her win most of the time.

Reading a book with Eric and Kylene (she spent a lot of the summer with us as well… through the computer)

Jungle gym…

Last week Eric left for the east coast to finish up law school at NYU and live closer to Kylene. It was really sad to see him go, though we all know this is certainly the best move for him. The kids miss him terribly already. I suppose we’ll have to make due with video chat, and try to convince him to come out and visit again soon…

Congrats to Eric! And lucky Damon to have a wrestling buddy. Damon has the best laugh—he is such a happy little guy. hmmm…not so “little” really. He may be a middle-weight wrestler someday. –Oma Peggy
