Boo's Papa was born and half raised in New England. When he was about Boo's age his parents moved him and his older brother to Africa. After a few years living there as teachers an unstable government and a coup forced their return to the States. But not too many years later they moved again. This time taking teaching posts in Japan where they adopted one of their students giving Papa a younger sister.
After graduating from high school in Japan Papa moved to Utah to ski & attend college. His brother joined the Air Force. It was an international family spread across the globe from the woods of New Hampshire through the deserts of Utah & Arizona to the city streets of Tokyo to whatever country Grandma & Grandpa were calling home.
When we had Boo Papa's mom flew from Romania to see her. His brother drove up from his Stateside Base. A few years later Grandma & Grandpa moved again. This time to the wilds of Utah to be with all of us.
Grandma & Grandpa still teach, venturing out for the occasional international teaching posts here or there. Mostly they are nearby for nights for gingerbread cake with lemon sauce, vanilla ice cream, and a game or two with their grandchildren.
Look out for Grandpa, he's an international game shark.
