This is why I scrapbook...

He is having such a hard time adjusting to life this year. So many new responsibilities...so many new opprotunities...he struggles to remain innocent and young. As I watched him today on our little adventure thru White Memorial, I saw a little boy trying so desperately to find his place in the world. He wants to play, watch cartoons, ride his bike. But he has homework, reading, clarinet lessons, soccer practice, puppet practice and on top of all that he is in the TAG (Talented & Gifted) program, which affords him the opportunity of great learning and experiments above & beyond what is available in the classroom. But even with all that on his plate, he is just a little boy...still a little boy...my little boy. I am in love with this little boy. I hope he can hang on to whatever is left of the boyhood he has while the rest of the world tries to take it away. Someday it will be all a sweet memory...
