The Green Day song, “Time of Your Life/Good Riddance” came out while I was in high school…it’s amazing how much the brain can retain after all these years.
Anyway, that song came to my mind when I looked through these photos of my son taken at my parent’s house.
I love capturing happy memories. It helps us remember all the good in life.
My older brother Keegan was visiting mom and dad’s the same weekend.
Keegan is really good with Wiley and when they go outside on adventures, that means Wiley has the best. day. ever. and I get some extra duty laundry to do.
I always think a little mud and what not on an outfit is worth the joy that came from putting it there.
The other half of the day’s fun comes when it’s time to wash the greater part of the mud from the shoes and hands.
I can’t keep up with cleaning his finger nails of dirt…he digs in every day.
not only a play ground, but a classroom!!
Two nights ago, Wiley woke up earlier than usual and Dan brought him into our bed.
I was having trouble getting Wiley to settle down to sleep again.
He got quiet and for a minute I thought It was okay for me to go back to sleep.
After several quiet minutes, in a very awake voice, Wiley says, “mooooooo” [pause] “cow.”
You can read kids books with pictures, but it makes such a bigger impression to have them actually see and interact with life!!
