dang, I can't seem to remember that one kid's name ... ;-), but I surely do love his summer hair!!!

and I'm so glad you got to say "real" goodbyes. perfect Dr. Suess quote for the occasion.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I hope he gets to come back to visit. My daughter in law has a pen pal from Eng. They became pals in the 3rd grade and they are now 40 and the internet sure makes communication easier. Hope your guys can keep up their friendship like that. Great pictures.

It's hard to add any more praise to the comments above. However, if I could tap my heels and make one wish, I would wish you were here to photograph the children that I love in Honduras. Great work!

What great shots! I too LOVE "what's his name's" hair. I have been looking for ideas for when my little one is older. That shot of Jourdan with the water on his face is amazing! Those boys are gonna be heart breakers when they are older.

The Lucky Wife @ The Saturday Evening Pot said...

LOVE those pictures... children must be the most fun subject! :) And... I just realized I need that quote (have heard it before but never clicked until tonight) by Dr. Seuss. I think it might help my son deal with fun times that have to transition to regular times... he doesn't do so well with that right now.

Hope you're having an awesome SITS day!

Spogden said...

I absolutely LOVE this post! Jourdan's photo is simply breath taking. So much emotion and so much story to tell. Great job!!
