Literary Adventures with Gabe / Via

I love being an English teacher. I get to read great books with great kids all day for the entire year. I also love being a father. I get to raise a human being, teach him how to throw a baseball, and introduce him to the Star Wars films. This is a wonderful life.

This summer, life got even sweeter. It was my first as a father. Rather than get to my to-do list items as I normally do during summers, I decided to distract myself with a father-son project. With the help of my eight month old son Gabriel, we recreated some cover art from a few great pieces of literature. So, in case you were wondering, this is what happens when an infant is left in the care of an English teacher for the summer.
