It has been a long time since I hung around someone who was 0 years old…my son was the last one and that was 28 years ago. We (my son and I) did so many things together and I always tried to give him as many options and opportunities as possible. If you dig into the archive of this blog you will find several stories of his growing up.
So much of what we did had little to do with me making things interesting or fun as much as us simply having fun together.
When my son was 7 we went on a Cub Scout camping trip to Boblo Island. It was in fact an island amusement park and the Cub Scouts had the entire island to themselves for 3 days. That’s right…3 days, camping, and all of the amusement rides you could stomach…for FREE!
I videotaped the whole camp out and when we got home, my son and I sat down to edit the footage. I had a favorite song at the time and so we created a music video together. My son did the direction and I did the editing.
I offer you the results keeping in mind that this was created 21 years ago…and a 7 year old directed it. Oh yah…and I LOVE my son!
The song is "Old Friends" by Stanley Clark, The video is 5:07 in length...be patient :)
