these notes, too, work best in sets
the 1996 world series
Parents were instructed to not take their kids out of school for the daytime ticker tape parade - but it was the first Yankees World Series victory since 1978. A moment in the family's history, a moment in New York's history, and a picture well worth 81 words.
A couple of undated notes - advising different kids, with different palates...
Not-so-gendered lessons on what it means to grow up - boy to man, girl to woman, kid to adult.
humbled & Excited
While Joanna and Theo were more into their sports teams than art classes, every once in a while, a project from school would come home that displayed an interest in Bob's other true love: art.
During his years at Pratt Institute, Bob experimented often with large-format prints. One of these prints hangs in the family's home, and Theo drew inspiration from it while in a ceramics class.
Vincent Van Gogh has always held a close place in Bob's heart - his first dog was named Vince, and Theo's namesake is the less-famous brother of one of the all-time greats. In both of these notes, Bob finds a way to express pride, encouragement, and say "thanks."
