"a portrait of my son, once a week, every week of 2014"

Jimmy: basically in his happy place, eating a bit of his mumma's croissant, waiting for the bus home after an interesting but annoying experience, as a storm rolls in. Fun times.

Photo credit goes to Michael, who took this in the Dillons East car park and the background is typical of what we see in Manhattan, KS. There is a lot of room for cars to park in this town, there is a lot of grass around the parking lots, not much in the way of gardens, just grass and trees, with big buildings sticking out. We were all tired and ready to go home after our first experience with the US medical system on Friday. What I thought was mastitis turned out to be just that and as Friday morning wore on I knew I was going to have to see a doctor, for antibiotics, before the weekend. The experience is worth its own post (watch this space). It was worth it because I got the antibiotics and the mastitis has cleared up, and the blockages have cleared up too.

21/52 means that we're close to halfway through the year. Eep! Having gone from early Autumn to early Spring and now heading into Summer, I feel the year is just starting up but I guess that's what happens when you grow up in the Southern Hemisphere. In a week or so we'll be another month down in our stay in Manhattan, KS. And before we know it, Jimmy will be celebrating his first birthday...


  1. Well-crafted photo Michael.
