When I took this picture back in March, I didn’t have a specific use for it. I thought I would use it in a post about my middle child, Kris, and I might still do that. But until that time, it fits the bill for this week’s –Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 5 – Pair.
Just about 4 years ago our middle child changed his name to Christopher. A few months later he had modified the spelling to Kristoffer. I was not thrilled with the spelling change at the time and when he asked if he could create his own pair of Converse shoes for his 19th birthday, I was hesitant to agree to his name being part of the final design. My worry about people seeing and knowing his name subsided as I realized that most of the time you couldn’t even see it. The spelling grew on me. I do see Kris more as a Kristoffer than a Christopher. And I have to admit that it was money well spent because those shoes have gone everywhere with him and he was worn them year round for the past 3 years.
Thank you to Hugh for hosting his weekly photo challenge. If you would like to check out other entries and/or join in the fun, head over to Hugh’s blog- Hugh’s Views & News to get the details.
