For example, the dad in our family LOVES fishing. Loves it! Guess who else does? Nathan. They didn’t even have to try … they just automatically have matching pictures in our photo album. It’s in their genes to look happy holding a fish for the camera while wearing sunglasses and a hat and standing in a river.
Fact: Imitating an ancestor actually makes dressing up fun. It may be torture on Sunday morning before church, but when it’s a silly game — no problem! Such was the case for Owen, who wanted to dress up like his great-great-grandfather, Andrew. Originally, Owen chose this photo to imitate because he wanted to wear cool glasses (which he found in the costume box). But Owen & Andrew actually have more than glasses in common. Andrew was a smart man … a school teacher. Anyone who knows Owen knows he’s a pretty bright kid, too.
