It's the Amazing E.!
We had the good fortune to spend time this past weekend with E. and his wonderful family. E. is pictured here in fearless mid-flight off the side of our boat. He is ALL BOY, and at ten, foreshadows things to come with my five year-old son. Although there's a significant age difference, they're both gregarious, resilient, digging, exploring, wrestling kinds of boys. The type of boy that's very physical and ALMOST ALWAYS UP TO SOMETHING.
Coming from a more sedate, readerly female perspective, I frankly can't even understand how I'm related to a person like that.
