~Little boy in blue~

This is Zach, the one of my 4 grandkids who didn't live in our town;
his visits  with us  were always very special - for us,  as well as for  him.

Climbing this tree, just before leaving for his home after each visit, became part of his ritual. He would pretend he wasn't leaving for awhile. It became a game that the whole family played along with.

I can look at this picture and remember exactly how I felt- the mixture of sadness for his leaving and the spirit of fun in the antics of this little boy!

Old time memories now...
The tree is long gone from some weird insect attacks that killed it.
The little boy in blue is gone, too!

(except here in my heart)

That's a great pose right there. I remember visiting my grandparents place, as soon as we touched our feet on the ground we ran towards this certain tree and climb up and eat the fruits. So the adults knew where we could be found up in the tree ^_^ Happy Wednesday!
