When the worst had passed, and the rain was still pelting the yard, I let him onto the front porch to try out his photography skills. I don't usually let the arrow anywhere near my camera (it is one notch down from the cell phone in terms of tempting yet forbidden items around here). But Go Explore Nature is hosting a linkup this week called Give a Kid a Camera, encouraing kids to take some pictures of nature. So while I didn't let him get very far with the camera, I did let him snap a couple of photos himself.

Go visit Go Explore Nature today to see what other nature-loving kids captured. Thanks to Debi for such a fun idea... I don't think I would have taken the arrow out in his first storm otherwise, and we definitely made some special memories.
