Grandson Walker scales the heights of Mt. Kenmore.
Our daughter-in-law Katie snapped the photo above on her iPhone. Grandson Walker was determined to achieve a goal, maybe to plunder something his parents had stored out of his reach atop the refrigerator.
The location, refrigerator and century are different, but the determined little body looks remarkably similar to his daddy’s at the same age. The difference is that our youngest son Jeremy’s hands were not grasping a refrigerator door. Instead he was holding to the woodwork that framed the passage between living room and kitchen in our home. He would hold on and with his bare feet, “walk” up the woodwork from floor to the top of the door.
I borrowed the image of Walker from The Daily Skup here. Katie captured Walker’s preparation for the climb. He had swept the refrigerator door clear of magnets and artwork and pushed his little step stool into position as a launching pad. She had a number of photos but never found out what he was after.
