all you need is some sunshine and a stick….

And yes, it is the end of March and the highs are in the 20’s. So over winter.

One afternoon earlier this month, it wasn’t freezing. And Brady had all this energy to burn. He wanted to be outside. We were not sold it was the best idea but he wanted to play with sticks, pretend to dig for dinosaurs and turtle chop with the sticks that were in our yard as a result of the latest storm. 

{On a side note, I thank god after every storm that the DEAD (really dead) tree in our yard did not crash in to our house. It will be removed at the first sight of spring.}
So, I decided instead of being annoyed that it was cold, frustrated about him demanding to be outside and Cate inside I would embrace it and use it as an opportunity to use my camera.  No joke, natural light does wonders when using a camera. I found myself quickly getting to settings that were acceptable. Notice I did not say correct.  And I started pressing the shutter button. Not stopping to look and see what I captured just pressing and hoping I would get some good shots. And I think I did. 
This kid is happy. 
This kid is so kind. 
This kid is so good for my soul. 
This kid is patient and loving and caring and accepting. 
This kid is 3.5 with a soul of someone much older. 
This kid is big and little all in one body.
This kid is all mine.
