The BucketBoy Grows . . .

Our son Ben was dubbed "The BucketBoy" because of the following photos from his preschool days:





We tried another bucket on for size when he was five, to create an updated version:




Recently, I received a request for some more current BucketBoy photos, now that he's eleven. Here they are for your viewing pleasure, uninterrupted by commentary. I think the BucketBoy's goofy personality shows through without needing any help from me!

Ya need a bigger bucket! Thank you for the updates. He is growing into quite the handsome young man. :) May God continue to grow him "in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man."

Adorable, I had to laugh that you put his real name there. It was like I think BUCKET BOY when I see him and not his real name.

I remember when Ben and Colin were toddlers, and we lived in an apt that had only a shower stall. Colin loved it that Ben had the same kind of bathtub he had. :)
