Now that you're singing that song, I hope it stays for the day...heh heh.
John and Eli leave for Brazil today. Our family is really going to be spread all across the world! I am so glad that Eli is going to get the chance to experience another culture, and also to see John's sister Margaret; where she lives and works with the poorest of the poor. Poppers is very excited as you can imagine! This will be his third trip, and as an added bonus he is meeting up with his brother when they stop and change planes in Atlanta. Uncle Joe will accompany them from there.
You should see these two together. Talk about kindred spirits--oh boy. John's brother Joe is a carbon-copy--albeit older--version of Poppers. They get along like peas, and it will be awesome for Eli to be able to spend some time with Aunt Margaret and Uncle Joe. Almost makes me wish I was---wait, nope.
Have fun gentlemen! God be with you!
