Favorite photo: WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE
When you have a family as large as ours with as many experiences and adventures as we have had, its hard, really hard, to select just one photo. This one however, has stood the test of time. Its my almost 35 year old son reading to his now almost 26 year old brother from one of our all time favorite books: WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE by Maurice Sendak. Joshua was almost 11 and Caleb was not yet 2; this was taken in our tiny Spartan Village Student housing apartment at Michigan State University right before my husband was commissioned in the US Army and we moved to Ft Belvoir, Virginia . Also included in the move was newborn Gideon, who didn't develope a love for WILD THINGS until some time later. Eleven other children later, we still have several copies of WILD THINGS around and still pull one out for a good rumpus session together!!
