awwwwwww...

I believe Garret was 6 when I snapped this picture.  It was early evening and the light was perfect.  I could have tried to "photoshop" the dirt off but Garret has, for years, loved to rub food, dirt, socks, etc over his mouth for the pure joy of texture.  (I like to rub wool on my face.  How 'bout you?)

Anyway, I was just working on archiving and organizing old pics and this one surfaced.  It makes me think of that song Richard Dreyfus sings to his son in Mr Holland's Opus.  

..."Beautiful Boy"!

one of my favorite pics of my daughter was of her tossing dirt up in the air to drift down onto her. Children are so delightfully tactile. I love that you didn't photo shop out the dirt. It's such a unique memory.
