    Alex and I have some Danish connections. We met in St. Croix which was under the Danish flag for some time. Alex is half Danish by birth and we both enjoyed a bit more than a year stay in Copenhagen not long after we were married.

    Balch can be traced to middle English where it meant variously "the canopy carried over the host in processions," "slightly bold," and "an unfledged bird." I'm told, in modern German, Balch means "brat." See Wikipedia: Balch.

    We hope our slightly bold scholar will stay grounded while he joyfully, plays and learns to fly with all the strange and funny things there are to learn about this space we call home.
