Nathen the Leader - Livin' the Good Life

11:32 am - Nathen the Leader
Nathen, our eldest, has often taken the lead with his brothers when it comes to taking up new interests. He starts passionately doing something, and then his brothers sometimes take it up too. (They say that, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.") One good example is college. A couple of years ago, Nathen went back to college to train for a "serious" career, and now Ely, Damian, and Ben, (and Maya!) have signed up for college as well. Nathen can be very influential and inspiring. Another way he has been an influence is with swing dancing. He talked Ely into attending a dance class with him, and the rest is history. Ely is a converted swing dance fanatic! Nathen dances weekly, and attends occasional swing dance marathon weekends. He just got back from one in Seattle and sent me this picture of himself and some newly-made friends. Doesn't he look happy? Doesn't that kind of make you want to take up swing dancing, too?
