runs in the family- feel at home- settle down- In the bosom of your family- leave the nest

,Dear Harry Your dad and I are so glad to hear that you are beginning to feel comfortable and feeling comfortable and relaxed already. Uncle Jack and Aunt Mary are fun to be with, aren’t they? They were a bit wild in their younger days. In fact, we wondered whether they would ever stay in one place and have kids. They did, of course, but it’s hard to believe that the kids have grown up and moved away from their parent’s home. You’re right- telling bad jokes is a common quality in your dad’s family. Just don’t tell your dad I said that ,Lots of love Mom
