One of Campbell Clansman's good friends (who was also in our wedding) is named Sam. We tell our kids to call him Uncle Sam, just because it is so fun. This summer he and his wife and children drove up several hours from their hometown to see us.
We met for a delicious dinner and tried to squeeze as much conversation in as possible. The last time we saw Uncle Sam, he was only engaged to the lovely lady in green.
Firstborn found her niche. Uncle Sam remembers her as a one year old. Now she is ten and holding his one year old so he can eat his dinner.
