This Sunday is for Nathan (revisited)

I am still out in California for Spring Break and as such, I am mailing in a few posts. Yesterday (3/26), was my son’s 13th birthday, so I figured I would revisit a post dedicated to my older, goofy, intelligent, wonderful boy.

I have been posting Sundays Are For Sebastian for over two years now, starting when he was four years old (he just turned seven last month). His brother, Nathan, was ten at the time and when he found out about the posts featuring his brother, he was initially a bit hurt that he was not receiving equal time. I explained to him that he also uttered equally hilarious statements when he was that age, but I erred in not writing them down.

I added that by ten years old (and likely much earlier), he had become socialized and had subconsciously learned (or lost) the innocence that was driving his brother’s “moments.”

It seemed as though he understood my first point and maybe even the second (emphasis on maybe).

I can assure you that Nathan is an incredible kid: extremely bright and fun-loving. I can only hope that Sebastian sees him as a role model.

Yesterday, Nathan was trying to move up a belt in Tae Kwon Do (the Korean martial art), and to do so, he needed to break his first board, which caused him a great deal of anxiety.

But he handled it like a boss:

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  1. Kudos to Nathan! I remember so well when my daughter broke her first board. She stuck with karate through Purple 2. 🙂
