I've always liked this picture of my oldest. It was taken in Kindergarten at Cook Elem.
He had a rough time at there*, but this picture shows a warmth and sincerity in his eyes, a sweet face, a little boy who is trying hard to do what is asked of him.
This is a boy who was was kissed often, with a smile that was offered readily. He was a boy who was cherished and loved. And he still is... even if he's a big 20 year old! We have high hopes for you and are proud of what a good kid you turned out to be, and we love you very much!
*He says he doesn't remember it being rough - sweet!
