Happy Birthday, sweet boy


The little guy is nine. Nine! I am astonished at the passing of time. It is as if I am on a train sitting still as scenes whirl by the window.
Do they serve cocktails on this train?
I hope so.

What a beautiful photo, no doubt capturing your son in one of his favorite places to play & explore. And is that a little net in his hand? My 7 year-old can't go anywhere without his!

I know what you mean about the crazy passing of time, and I felt a pang in my heart as a read your post. Pass the cocktails!

That's his frog-catching net :)
It's a photo of his great-aunt's farm - a beautiful area (that pond is full of frogs!)
