My niece Micaela lives in Northern Arizona. Isn't she adorable? She's smart as a whip too. She just turned 12, and she plays the flute, and is a voracious reader. My brother Chris and his wife Becky like being near Becky's mother and other family so that Micaela grows up with cousins and grandparents in her life. I hope that our family can visit them next year. Thea is always saying how much she misses them. She's never actually met them, but in her almost 4 year old mind the love is just as strong as if she had.
