afternoon (de)light

boothe in the afternoon light

i have a few things to note from this week, but wanted to post this photo of my son boothe that i took a couple of hours ago. it deserves to be posted while the sun is still casting her light.

this is the boi who was scrambling & dodging for cover for the last year and now he is on top of his game and graduates a year early in june. this is the son of mine who walked out of the house when he was younger with just one shoe on and now he has two on each and every day. boothe manned up and met the task of being the man of the house this year. he is also the very one who would squirm at the sound of 'camera' and yet delicately let himself seep into this capture this afternoon.

the hopes and pride that i have always held for him are unfathomable. may the sun always be on his back and a smile always be on the face of my golden boy.

What is it about Christmas time and photos? It must be all that reflecting back over the whole year and all the Christmas's before. Boothe got his looks from his mama. May you always bask in this reflected golden glory.

Oh man, the last picture i remember seeing of Boothe was one of the band, and he'd just spilled some kind of red drink all over himself. Where did this hunk come from?!

Seriously, that is so awesome that he is graduating early. Good job to you both.

lovins,

Very nice! I know how you must feel, because I feel it every time I look, or think about my son.
