Way Back When-esday: Darren Doolittle

Dateline: August 2006
Darren's (and his sister's) Age: 4 and a half

On the last day of the twins' first Vacation Bible School experience (it was farm-themed), a menagerie was brought in for the attendees to appreciate. When it comes to animals, Darren knows them with an inexplicable wisdom and empathy...he always has. This picture---one moment captured in what must have been a fifteen minute 100% silent session wherein the wee creature was entirely relaxed, and so was Darren---speaks volumes.

What memories make your mid-week wonderful? Dive into those digital photos or scan a scrapbook find and play along with Way Back When-esday. Be sure and link back to participate in the web-wide reverie...and leave a comment when you do!

That picture reminds me so much of my Kaleb. He's an animal lover too. (there will be a post to follow, later today or tomorrow on Kalebs run in with our dog this week that caused a trip to the ER.) What a great picture, and sounds like a fun theme for a VBS!!!!

What a sweet picture. Lexy has the same way with animals, she says she wants to be a vet or a pet groomer :-)

Looks like a match made in, well Bible School. Did the little guy get to come home with you?! I can see a future of small furry things with my boys already...

Oh that is precious. He looks like he is very interested in that little critter.

So sweet!

The empathy on his face is really moving! For such a young boy, that is quite amazing. He's going to be quite a sensitive man when he grows up!

Happy WBW!

Oh that young man has a talent indeed. Maybe a Vet in the making?

Oh my. I am in the middle of our Vacation Bible School week and I cannot even contemplate a farm theme . . . the animals would NEVER survive!!
