I always had a camera on hand when the boys were little (before smart phones had cameras). Usually on the kitchen counter top. It was easily accessible in case a memorable moment occurred.
This was one of those moment.
Zakkery was waiting for the bus to kindergarten. Jeremiah loved when the bus pulled up because he enjoyed waving to the other kids, but he didn't like the fact that his brother had to get in the bus.
His play buddy was gone.
In this picture Zak has his oversized backpack for school. And Jeremiah ha on his Hero Cape.
2 year old had asked for a cape. I'm not sure why but we made a trip to Joann's To buy cape fabric. It was solid red pajama fabric.
I cut it to size and it was ready to go. No sewing necessary.
Daily I had to pin the cape to his shirt with safety pins. Once the weather warmed up I tied them around his tank tops straps.
That tells you how long he wore this cape.
9 years have past and I still have that tiny piece of fabric. The boys are older now. Tween + Teen now reside here and I love these ages too. But these days too will be a sweet memory.
