I love watching them when the sleep.

Reminds me too, I need new sneakers.

I love how angelic kids look while they sleep...! And those shoes, those shoes will take them anywhere and everywhere. The future is limitless at 17.

Marcie said...

Wonderful pair of images. They grow so quickly...off and running into their own lives. Great to have captured her asleep.

Enjoy the energy that 17 year olds bring while you can. Life really changes when they leave.

Cool captures!

Great shots!! I love the fact that the sneakers they wear to be cool now are the sneakers I had to wear when I was a kid because we couldn't afford athletic sneakers. lol.

I am 29, but I still wear those shoes.

All those possibilities at seventeen. The world is hers right now, isn't it?

Char said...

I'm over 40 and still love my chucks.

this post totally reminded me of that folk singer - why does her name escape me? Is it Phoebe Snow?

ELK said...

the song was song by Janis Ian ...I did not think of the song when I posted this just a bittersweet moment
looking at my kiddo at seventeen...
