Haden is the youngest of my four children and the only one left still at home. He’ll be 17 in April. And, according to him, our life at home is similar to a Family Guy episode. Not one day goes by without him saying, “That reminds me of a Family Guy episode. . .” This was surely my goal in life, no?

He’s our Guitar Heroes Expert Guitarist and bandleader, I know Dennis and I bring his band down. But he trudges on with us anyway. (We did finally get this song, it just drove him crazy that we got so close our first time playing, and he demanded a photo be taken of the tv.)
He loves being outside no matter what the weather.
He’s the brave one in our crew. Willing to climb tall trees, all the way to the tippy top, or wiggle down a fallen one from a cliff to the beach below (done for a geocache).
He does many things that we don’t understand.
And when I stick a camera in his hands, the photos that come back are of bugs and spiders.
He found this Black Widow for me to photograph and held a twig for it to pose from.
And this nighttime web weaver.
And this scary hairy guy.
And although I will be sad when he moves out, I won’t miss his roommate.
