While my oldest son had the day off school on Good Friday, we took advantage and took off for Oak Park, IL (lots of incredible Frank Lloyd Wright architecture there!) At the end of our day hanging around the city we passed a church with a sign outside inviting people to come in and visit their Stations of the Cross. This was perfectly interactive for the kids ... you could touch the Crucifixion nails, the Crown of Thorns, and taste the salty tears (lettuce dipped in salt water). At the end you light a candle and place it at the foot of the cross. While kneeling, my youngest son spontaneously clasped his hands together in front of his face. It was a beautiful moment. He wanted to pray. So happy to have captured that, and love how the candlelight highlights his cheeks and still chubby hands. Even more special to me is knowing that we're finally on track with giving our kids a religious foundation.I'll always treasure this photo as a symbol of our milestones this year.
