Ernest dressed up for an event, so I felt I simply HAD to have a picture of him. To be extra sure we got a good one, I handed the big camera to my husband. He got a picture (but I cropped it down to this because he didn't know about the zoom lens). I like my hands and phone in there!
Then I grabbed the big camera myself. But it was already too late, he was all Bye Mom, I Gotta Go. We could retitle it Catch Me If You Can. Gone in 60 Seconds. Gone With The Wind.
See ya. Whoosh. The tail of the trench coat flowing around the corner.
The next day he packed up for a 5-day climbing/backpacking trip with his class.
