Weekly Photo Challenge – Wall

~

~

134 door

a door frame at our old two flat

~

~

As usual, I had to skew the rules of this week’s photo challenge.  As you can see, the photograph is that of a door frame – not a wall.  In my mind, a door frame could be considered part of a wall, so… this is a wall.

This photo is actually one of several due to the fact I wanted to be able to see the details.  In case you are wondering, this is a quintessential growth chart.  It began in 2002 and was actually moved next door (in 2007) when our friend re-fabricated his kitchen.  I transferred the information from the piece of wood to the frame above and, of course, we added on…  I took this photo a few days before we moved in April, 2013.  (By the way, I was given the original door frame, which is still with us to this day.)

If you look very closely, you can see my name (mom) and when J and P passed me up!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Reward

*

Happee

my children

My children are ‘the greatest’ reward.

(& to take a photograph where everyone is home at the same time, eyes open, smiling directly at the camera (big, natural, happy, unforced smiles) and the hairy one being cooperative….this was a rare moment captured on film.  This in and of itself is a reward!)

A letter….

My dearest Bill,

I wanted to thank you for our time spent yesterday. It was nice to have you with me while I was driving to work. I needed someone to talk to and you were there listening……I think. I mean, I could hear you responding to my conversation.

I know we discussed this, but I am still in disbelief that Jordy is 20. Can you believe it? Just yesterday you were lifting him onto your shoulders and goofing around. I have been thinking about the camping trips and road trips and movies. Oh my gosh, the movies. Can you believe he still has every ticket stub for every movie we ever went to? And the big 6′ Oscar display board that you carried down the Las Vegas strip on a very, very windy day (and cursing, might I add) just so we could ship it UPS to Jordan? It was your idea…..

Jordan is still the stubborn, silly and vivacious little boy he was, he is just now taller and he has a beard. Oh my, yes, a beard. A pretty impressive one, actually. Scary, I know but true. And he is doing so well at school. You would not believe what he has accomplished and the responsibilities he has been granted. Remember how you always tried to give him a job so he could make some money? And how he was never interested – too involved in his mind and movies? Well, he has been appointed the position of treasurer (youngest ever) of the largest student run organization on campus and – I hope you are sitting down – he is in charge of a five figure budget! He is overseeing all the money’s being spent on movie projects and he has to go to faculty and alumni events to raise money. Yes, our boy…..the one who could not sell his Boy Scout popcorn!!!!!

Oh Bill, I miss you. We miss you. I thought for sure you would be here for all of these moments. I know how much you were looking forward to the boys becoming young men so you could show them things and impart your knowledge of lessons you learned as a wild young man. I can assure you, neither one is wild, though Jordan finally did go out to a club on campus a few months back. To hear him tell the story, it sounded like ‘geeks go listening to music and do strange dancing’…. Believe me, and I know you know this, the kid’s dance moves are, well, let’s just say ‘scratch the beard’ is his signature move. (Don’t ask;)

I was thinking after our talk yesterday that you are just as much a part of my son as his father and I. We made him, but you were a part of his life for 12 years and they were not just ‘years’ – they were his formative years. Sometimes he says and does things that remind me of you. It is said we live on in our children, even after we are gone. Bill, you are doing just that in both Jordan and Peyton. I want you to know that they and I appreciate everything you gave them. Everything.

Okay, I really need to stop being the silly emotional mom (yes, I am crying, dammit), though I am certain you are getting quite a laugh at my expense. I will let you go now doing what it is you do. How is the ‘hammock hanging’ by the ocean treating you? Sick of fish tacos yet? Pee says hi. I know she misses you. You need not worry about payback in regards to taking care of Pee. We have gotten plenty of it and, now I am the one who wears the big ‘S’ for sucker on her back – just like you did.

Bill, we love you.

The boys, your little girl and Kimberly xoxo

ps: Please keep a watchful eye on our boys;)

Actually Jordan is jumping!!!  Not certain if there is a breeze but, yes he is really jumping and this photo, believe it or not, was neither tweaked, photo shopped or anything of the like!  (Honestly, I asked.)  It seemed Jordan kept jumping like a jack-in-the-box and Peyton took rapid shots with his i-phone and this is the ‘highest point’ picture!
