(That’s not a typo, that’s how they write it in Latvian!) Mike’s youngest brother came home after serving a two year mission in Latvia. We were so thrilled to get to see him before we came back to Colorado. While waiting for Uncle Dane, I explained that while Daddy (Mike) and I have each other, and Uncle Hal and Aunt Sam have each other, Uncle Dane doesn’t have someone he can hug and love on. Lily exclaimed (as only Lily Lovebug can), “I will run up and give Uncle Dane the BIGGEST hug so he won’t be lonely!”
We spent that night and the next day just hanging out and hearing all about his time in Latvia. It was so great to be around him and to spend time with the rest of the family.
