I was scrolling through family camping pictures from earlier in the summer and I kept on coming back to this one. This is why:
1. He’s writing his name. Kindergarten teachers everywhere are cringing at the use of all caps instead of one uppercase letter & the rest lowercase (note to his teachers: we’re working on it!)
2. The band-aid on his arm & his messy face. (S’mores evidence or dirt – not sure which)
3. Bare feet. On this morning we walked the shoreline for quite some time. When it was time to head back to the camp site, we realized that his little red rain boots were left a half-mile away.
I love how one image can help us remember so much. For us, this is what the age of five looks like.
