My Teddy Bear by Jacob Wallace (my oldest son :0)

My Teddy is my best friend
he goes with me everywhere,
He’s torn and dirty and missing an eye,
but I don’t really care
He’s there for me when I’m happy
and even when I’m sad,
I know he will always love me,
even when I’m bad
We’re friends till the end
I will never let him go,
Even when I’m old and gray,
I’ll have my bear to show.

    This picture is so graceful, I don’t really know any other word to describe it. The way he has his arms out to the sides makes him look like he is almost dancing across the field. So natural, it is a classic childhood shot.
