graduate of the fifth grade

'I like nonsense, 
it wakes up the brain cells.  
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, 
it's a way of looking at life 
through the wrong end of a telescope.  
Which is what I do, 
and that enables you to laugh 
at life's realities.'  
~Theodore Geisel

Shey said...

p.s. Did you have to take this picture secretly from the corner so he wouldn't tell you "Mom! stop taking pictures! I can see you!" hehehe I just thought of it because I remembered you mentioned he didn't like to take pictures so much hehehe

Lisa said...

Wow! The 5th grade...That's awesome!

I LOVE this picture! Now, how does Kaishon feel about it? LOL!!!

Karen Deborah said...

so funny, the contemplation of what to shave, the head or the chin? He is growing up! I'm sure Kaish appreciates that he was in his "drawers" and not sporting his little nekkid booty.

I can't get over just how awesome his hair is.

P.S. If the link bothers you, delete the comment. If the link does not, don't. If you are unsure, use your best judgement...or flip a coin.

Oh my word, I just love that boy! I know I tell you this all the time, but he could be Ross & Sam's brother!
This is a big graduation, right? I remember how important 6th grade felt. Time is flying!

Cheryl said...

Such a precious moment in Kaishon's life. You are blessed to have captured it. I found your blog through Donna at Quite Life. She raves about you. I understand why.
