Almost age 12. Possibly the waning days of LEGO play, but I love that he can still spend two hours alone fighting battles between good and evil in his newly painted room. Kids in the Hood has pushed and challenged me this year. I knew this would happen. As our heroes are maturing, they are harder to find, often busy at more passive, less visually dynamic endeavors. They don’t always want me around, and I’ll admit I’ve been tired and a little intimidated to rise to the challenge. Sometimes it’s these kids that intimidate me, with their new attitudes and postures they are trying on for size. There are crushes and explorations into new and scary-wonderful phases for #finnstagram, #katestagram and the rest. #Dylanboy and #Seamus have moved out of the hood, and I think we are all still adjusting. I’m regrouping. Hoping I find the stuff to navigate this challenge that I knew would come eventually. It can’t be climbing trees and shooting baskets and rocking hula hoops forever. At my deepest understanding of what this project could be, I know the most powerful years and images could be ahead. I’ll try again in 2018 to tell the story of four + evolving kids in one American neighborhood. I hope you’ll continue to watch. #kidsinthehood

Clearly I should spend most of my time underwater. Hoping for as much underwater time (and as many likes!) in 2017. Thanks as always for looking and liking! ❤️🧜🏿‍♀️ #bestnine2017
