Supporting the big brother


We’ve had the good fortune of seeing quite a few of Sam’s Bowdoin College rugby games this season, and there’s no-one more excited about cheering for the Polar Bears than Jack. His big brother plays the game hard, and as you can see from the color of his uniform, he isn’t afraid to mix it up and get involved in the game. We’ll miss seeing Sam play in the spring – he’s heading overseas for a semester abroad – but we’re all eager for next fall to come around when he’ll be playing his senior season. Senior season!?! Wow… where does the time go!

      • I don’t have siblings and always wanted one/ Older, younger, it didn’t matter. They may have times when the age difference is more evident but in the long run they will still have each other

          Yeah… that 12 year age difference won’t seem so big in a few years. In the meantime, it’s fun to see them interact in a way other than what you might expect from siblings that are around the same age. No bickering here… lots of adulation from the little one, and lots of genuine caring from the big one.

I'd love to hear from you...
