Old B & Ws of Leroy

March 20, 2008

My friend, Carrie Salazar, recently sent me these old pics she had taken of Leroy, and her daughter Ruby, who were born within a month of each other.

Here is the video done by their older brother:

I’m proud of there work, and now I know you can do some form of this even with six year olds.
