When I was looking through the photos that I have taken this month to find February's photo-heart connection I couldn't go past this one.
I think it's mostly the subject that connects with my heart... but I do love this shot.
I took this shot one afternoon when Charlie had come home from school.
I had my camera (as I sometimes do) and when I pointed it at him, this was his immediate response.
Love that smile.
It's been a big year so far for Charlie.
He started high school and has had to deal with a lot of changes:
catching buses & trains, making new friends, more homework, remembering which books he needs.....
Although overwhelming, he has approached it all with enthusiasm, confidence and a determination to do his best.
In fact, the same way he approaches everything else in life.
I'm so proud of him.
