Father's Day 2013

You know that 'Wanna have a catch?' moment at the end of "Field of Dreams"? Mine was in a mall parking lot circa 1982. 

I'm not sure exactly why I wrote this out, but I think it was something in me that needed to come out. I didn't quite get it as polished as I would've liked, but today was the right day to post it.

"We're going into town."

The boy just stood there. Blinking, confused.

"LET'S GO, kiddo!"

The boy jerked into motion. His father had snapped at him, which meant it could be one of those days. But he had also called him "kiddo", which was a name usually reserved for friendly conversation. Too early to tell yet how this would go.

Don't Blink

As my oldest son marched up to get his "diploma" today, I tried to catch the moment but he was too quick and was by me in a blur. Disappointed, I was about to delete the wasted pic when I realized the camera had actually just perfectly captured exactly how I was feeling about that moment and my beautiful boy's childhood.

I took a lot of pics today, but I think this one might be my favorite.
