Here is another photo taken

from other side of the fence

where parents, siblings

and grandparents 

“Root, root, root

for the home team. . .”

This is my grandie,

Micah, who has no fears

nor trepidations. He is my

“Little Shadow” and yet,

never hides in the shadows.

Thank goodness for confidence

and bravura, as well as daring,

but genuine caring, gamesmanship!
