A little less than a year ago, Gabriel arrived with a good bit of fairly dark brown hair. I assumed he would have Matthew’s nice, deep brown hair color, but over the past year, G’s hair lightened quite a bit. I now describe it as “golden,” especially when the sun hits it, and in this picture, it looks red.
Anyhow, Sir has been vacationing in Iowa with Baba (Czech for “Grandma” — Matthew’s mom’s side of the family is Czech) for the past few days. We’ll be apart for over 72 hours (previous longest separation was 27 hours), which made me a bit apprehensive.
Fortunately, Baba reports that things are going very well. Sir’s only complaint is that she didn’t bring enough sungolds.
I headed to the garden this morning for a picking session, since Sir said he would refuse to see us if we did not come bearing gifts.
Happy 4th of July!
