I have always been fond of this silly photo of my children taken at their grandparents’ house in or around 1982 or 83. They are such ham hocks, don’t you agree? Totally in cahoots. Bekah is keeping an eye on things, Nate is thinking of something funny, and Rachel is looking like a double for her own little Chloe. The picture is stuck behind the glass, which explains the weird marks on Rachel’s legs. I especially enjoy their lackadaisical posture. No doubt they were taking a quick break for the photo shoot after climbing around in Grandma Bessie’s attic.
(N.B. “Ham hocks” is a term of endearment at our house.)
