I have been wanting to write about our kids, but with six kids that could be a long post. So, I decided that every Sunday for the next few weeks I will update about one of our kids and where they are and such. It's a new year after all.
Meet Khristiaan Gage, he's our 19 year old, pretty much the middle child. He just left our nest about 8 months ago. He kinda has hat hair in this photo but he reminded us a lot of a young Keanu Reeves. The girl with him is his girlfriend, Ashley and you'll be seeing more of her in a macro Monday soon.
Khris is doing good, he'll still always be my 'Gator'. But he's finding his way out on his own fairly well. He's still working for a temp agency and unfortunately this means his work is sporadic. It seems he works about three weeks a month and he'd really like to find something more permanent but it hasn't happened yet. So far he has worked at a recycling plant, potato processor, and making headlights. Fingers crossed that he finds something more stable soon. Other than that, you may remember he got cut in July and had 18 stitches, that has healed very well and no more troubles there. He got a tattoo, it's rather large for my taste but he likes it and I guess that's what's important. It goes from his elbow to his wrist and is a version of the statue of liberty that he saw on some band's cover. Overall he's doing good.
While we were shooting the couple in the park we found a love letter. So I placed the note in the foreground for a couple of shots. You can actually read the last paragraph.
When I think of you, your sweet rosy lips and big beautiful smile flash in my mind's eye! I want to hold you in my arms & feel the tenderness of your sensuous lips on mine! I miss your kind voice & touch of your caring hand, Sweet Baby Love! ~ Yours Always ♥ ♥
When we got home from the park I discovered a ladybug on my mums.
This post shows you my four biological children in September 2007, you can see how much they have changed in this short time and Khris' hair was longer then. We took Khris and Ashley to a different area of the same park for the photos this day.
