Men Are That They Might Have Joy

Pure Joy


We went over to Sophia's preschool the other night for her art showcase.  After we saw all of the neat things she's made this year, we let the kids play on the playground for a bit.  Sophia headed straight for the sandbox, and had the time of her life throwing old leaves into the air.

Pure, unadulterated joy.

And pure, unadulterated Sophia.  This photo perfectly captures the little girl I adore...right down to the plumber's butt.

  9. I noticed her "plumber's butt" first thing in that picture, mostly because I have a daughter like that too. No matter what I do- it always shows!

  11. I spend every day with 18 seven and eight year olds. I spend every day with my one perfect little girl - she's eight, too. Every day I spend time on the playground with children. You know what the best part of that is? Moments just like this Sophie-moment you captured.

  12. i LOVE these precious moments you're able to capture!

    (And, I swear, she and Laci must have been carved out of the same mold - even the plumber's butt! By the time Laci fills out enough for her pants to fit over her hips properly, she's wearing high-waters.)

  13. Wonderful description of a child full of joy. My favorite photo of my older daughter is her face of pure fun when she danced a hula dance with a grass skirt on that she had just received as a gift.

  16. Lovely pic & yes, I feel the joy here!!

    PS: Didn't notice the plumber's butt until you pointed it out, hehehe. ;) My littlest ends up with that butt sag more often then I'd like, too...
