I Heart Faces: Nostalgia

It has been a while since I threw my hat photo in to the mix at I Heart Faces, but I thought it would be fun this week - I love the theme.



If you've been following me for even a short amount of time you know that my big guy is a climber. He climbs the walls, the furniture, and, quite recently, out the window!! To be honest with you to me this is no surprise.

As a child I was a climber too.

I remember my brother and I seeing who could get the highest in our favorite climbing tree in our back yard. (there were so many trees to climb that yes we had a favorite).

I remember a tree at our church that I would love to sit up in. In the summer, when it was full of leaves you could sit up in the tree and watch everyone walk by, going about their day, their fellowship, never realizing that you were sitting up there watching.

So while at times it can be scary, watching Tommy climb to the top of a jungle gym that older kids would shy away from, it also brings back so many memories - and part of me loves to watch him climb as high as his little legs will take him.

  14. Love that shot! I want to know how you got it too. I've always been afraid of falling out of trees so I never got very high up.
