The Pentamerous Family

“I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.” – Robert Orben
Evidence of a well-lived life is to get to know people and to enjoy their life for no other reason than because they are happy. I was able to meet this family when I worked at the local teen center and as we both prepare to depart Belgium, they allowed me (yes allowed) to take their family portraits. These teens were a handful despite knowing and liking me (most days) but we still had fun and captured some cute memories.
I have to put this dad on high too–he’s such a great father and is always there for all three of his kids, I got to witness his willingness to put them first, love them for who they are, and let them make mistakes.
