Round two challenge went up this morning.

Criteria:

- a distinct left and right side (mirroring the two hemispheres of the brain)

- one of the historic symbols of courage (swan, bear, hand, arrow, beetle, lion, dog, unicorn or crown)


Here is my sample page

Journaling reads: If only we didn't live so far away from your cousins. When Tom came to visit you were his little shadow.


Poem
We are walking together
my big cousin and me
When he is around,
I'm as happy as can be
We laugh and we play
Making memories from place to place
Friendships that will last through life
are things you can't replace
He tells me stories
as we walk along
I tell him things too,
In my own special way
And he understands
All the words I can't say
I'm happy as can be
As I'm standing by his side
Just being together
My big cousin and me.
Jarred and Tom - September 2009
