Take pictures of yourselves being embarrassing and strange in Target.
Take pictures on hikes. Again, try not to be normal. Take pictures with your high school friends.
Take silly pictures at the mall.
Take pictures with your siblings. Be as real as possible.
Take pictures in a field just because you feel like it.
Take pictures by the campfire with a blinding flash. It can take some work, but try for that optimum “nostril” angle.
Take pictures in a blanket fort. Take pictures for no apparent reason other than “hats.”
Hand the camera to your brother and see what happens.
Take pictures in the Youth Challenge van on a trip to Cabelas.
Take pictures even when you don’t understand how to smile properly.
Take lots of pictures, because you will treasure that Christmas forever. Take lots of pictures, because the Target one will never fail to make you smile. Take lots of pictures, because you are awesome and it needs to be memorialized. Take lots of pictures, because they’ll help you see the blessings that overflow in your life. Take lots of pictures, just because.
(Remembering Katie, who took way too many pictures. She is missed.)
