Just a kid doing his thing

Seth with the Ball, originally uploaded by Temeculamom.

I just had a request from my sister to make this photo of my nephew black and white. I took this a couple of years ago before he had any inkling of his hip trouble. I love the way that kid was so unconsciously good with the ball. He was just walking along tossing it and catching it one-handed without giving it a second thought, and I had to capture it.

With those Converse sneaks, this could almost be a photo from 50 years earlier.

On a happy note, he has (finally!) been fitted with a brace that actually fits and feels right. He was actually running a bit yesterday! The kids at school are completely used to it now, so he is back to normal in his social circle, although he is having to opt out of P.E. and all the sports he used to do at lunch and recess. Thanks for all the good thoughts you’ve been sending his way.
