Jean and I were walking Kachina Wetlands near sunset a few weeks ago, when up rode this kid, stunting on his bike like you’ve never seen from 5-year-old.
Turns out his beloved grandfather recently passed away, and the only thing he wanted of his grandpa’s belongings was his hat.
The young man told us he wants to be a cowboy, just like his grandpa. Is there any doubt that he’ll make it?!
And yes, he’s wearing “Grandpa’s Hat.”
(Thanks, “Mom,” for letting me share your son’s pic and story!)
