Eric's parents are good friends of mine, so it was a special treat to spend some time with their son. The apple didn't fall far from the tree on this one. He's a good, fun-loving young man, and he did a great job holding back the yawns so we could get some pictures taken. Mom was a big help, holding the transmitter and encouraging Eric with a few "Oh YEA's", and some "Ooooohhhs". He even humored me when I asked him to climb up in some trees. Eric is also a lacrosse player, so we'll be doing some more pictures to capture that side of him.
Eric, you were great today! Thanks for letting me hang out with you and Mom. . .
