As our week-long vacation together comes to a close, I ask Jeb if he’d be open to us having a little dialogue to be published here on the Archives. I’m curious to have his nine-year old perspective recorded and shared.
But as is the way with many ideas brought to children by adults, it’s mine, not his. And he’s just not into it. No use in trying to convince him. Otherwise, the intent of trying to get his authentic viewpoint is lost.
But he has been taking pictures. And on more than one occasion he has suggested that I “post it on your blog, mom.”
Here are some of my favorites from the Jeb summertime files.
