B and His Carrots

Beau and all the bendaroo carrots he made.

It’s been fun getting to know this little guy better this year. You think you know your children well. And you do. Better than anybody else. But then they go to school. And they change, and grow, and learn. And become these new little beings, with fresh ideas and interests. You start to find out what they are made of, and who they will be and where they will go. And it’s fun. It’s a wee bit bittersweet too. Watching them grow up, that is.

In case you were wondering… B constructed these Bend-a-Roo carrots all of his own accord. Each one was special and had a specific function. Some were candy, some were poisonous, some were just “reguwar”, all were pretty dern cool.
