He's a Finn of few words, and Waffles laughs about his deep "terminator" voice. Ergo, his nickname is Schwartz. 18 years old and he's a hoot. His common utterances include:

"Tennis was quite fun."
"I think that is quite good."
"I take the car today."
"Is there ice cream?"
"When is dinner?"

We really enjoy having him here this year - adding to the melee and reconnecting us with all that I love about Finland. I lived with Schwartz's mom when I was an exchange student in Finland in 1982. How's that for connection?

What a little cutie! He's 18 so I'm allowed to say that.
