Noah

And a big thank you to both of your nephews for the work they are doing.

Thank you, Sue, for your kind words. Noah and Matthew are not my nephews, however; they are my grandsons.

Sorry about that. I knew it, and the post said so, and my dsylexic fingers and brain still made the error.

Now you have me wondering which is a closer relative, a nephew or a grandson. A grandson is a direct descendant, of course, and a nephew is not, but a nephew is only one generation removed whilst a grandson is two generations removed. I lie awake at night considering such things. To the common ancestor, your parents, your nephew is their grandson and your grandson is their great-grandson, so I think I may have solved the puzzle as it relates to your parents. But I can't help thinking that one's child's child would qualify as a closer relative than one's sibling's child. We may never know the answer.

A great experience. Noah will always remember this trip.
