Roxannee says, KAYA!

I love this picture of Ethan so the same time it makes me melt inside because it reminds me that one day, he'll be able to leave our nest and explore the world. A cautious boy that he is, I was glad that he decided to try climbing up trees. I remember him saying " Look Mom, I can swing in this tree! I'm a big boy now!"

I used the bird as a symbol for exploring the world, clock because time flies and one day he'll soon be on his own,& the star as his guide in whatever he does. It is not only the first time I made a layout with this picture. I reckon it's one of those shots that you can extract a lot of memories.And I thought that Winnie the Pooh's words to Christopher Robin was spot on for the way I feel with it.

You are now 6 years old and ready to show the world what you can do.
