Teaching Him to Fly

I know this is supposed to be Wordless, but even though the photos tell the story, the story requires some setup.  These are among my all-time favorite photos.

Cast of Characters:
Roger, my brother
Cierra, our niece

Location:
Front porch swing at our Mother's house, Red House, VA

Time:
Several years ago (maybe 10 - my brother has been gone 3 years and Cierra is now 16!)










Linking to  Wordless Wednesday and   Wordless Wednesday but With Words.

VeryVeryVery Sweet series! Thank heavens for our cameras and the fact that we love to click them! That memory is not only close to your heart Linda, but forever preserved with a few clicks. Put a smile on my face this morning. So sorry about your brother. Love his expressions on his face!

As an aside...where did you get that no word verification button? I NEED one. The double WV is making me NUTS!!
