You know how I did that photo shoot of Vern for his birthday? And I thought I would do those more often because I want to capture what he looks like, from year to year, growing older (just like I do for my kids). I think that all of us adults should do this for each other, because won't it be fun to look back on who we were when we were 25, 35, 45 years old? (Not to mention that our kids might find it interesting as well.)
The last time I REALLY did this with Vern was 12 years ago, when we lived in Wheaton, IL, and I was studying photography at a local community college. I took a bunch of pictures of him for my classes.
Here are some of them:
This is what Vern looked like when he was 23 years old. And that is kind of nice to remember.
So, take pictures of yourselves now, grown ups, because it's going to be fun to look back on when you're 80.
