Clay has a shadow, all day, every day! His name is Sam. He dresses like Clay, tries to talk like Clay, and he wants to do every thing that Clay does. Fortunately, Clay serves as an excellent example for his younger brother. He is patient with him, and he spends most of his waking (and sleeping--they share a room) hours with him. They do chores together, work in their shop together, work in the woods, ride bikes and four-wheelers together, and really do almost everything together.
Last week when Clay was out mowing the grass, Jimmy pointed out Sam to me. He was Clay's shadow. Every step Clay made, there was Sam, one step behind.
Clay taught Sam how to put the bag back on the mower.
Almost got it
All ready for Clay now
Getting a drink before getting back to work
The yard looked great when the boys were done!
