Coolest Uncle Ever

     My little brother became an uncle at the ripe old age of 10. In fact, the day our niece & nephew were born, he was not even old enough to be  allowed in the hospital room to visit {the hospital’s rules, not my family’s!} Patrick is 13 now, and as far as Thomas & Cecilia are concerned, he is pretty much the coolest uncle ever. Thomas is especially enthralled with Pat {and Pat’s legos, matchbox cars, basketballs, etc} One night as I sat down at the dinner table next to Thomas, he looked up at me and said “I want to sit next to Uncle Patrick, not you, Aunt Laura” I can’t say I blame the him.

And, can I just fill you in a little more on the coolest uncle ever, AKA as my youngest brother, the baby of our family?  This kid rode his bike down the street, violin in tow, to play in a nursing home on a Sunday afternoon. No words. Except I need to go start a charity or something. How many 13 year old boys do that?! He truly is the coolest ever. Shoot, and while I am bragging, this kid also played a solo in the atrium at Chrysler Hall before the Virginia Symphony played last night.  {I hope he forgives me for my lack of video-recording skills}

I love this kid.

p.s My nephew is pretty cute, too!

He looks so sweet! Both your brother and your nephrew! What sweet pictures. I love the colors; they look somewhat like old pictures. Do you use Photoshop? And, to play the Violen; now that is talent! What a beautiful story!
