these photos make me happy

 In my room there is an 8x10 framed picture of each child of when they were 4 years old.  This way each night as I go to bed and see the oh-so-sweet faces in the pictures, no matter how difficult the kids have been, I seem to get an extra dose of patience.    Granted they are only 10, 8 and 5.  I wonder if this approach will still work when they are older...

Erik age 4.
 This photo has gotten him out of trouble a number of times!
 (Thank you Holly H. for taking it.)

Here are some more recent photos that also make me happy:
