Meet Harry

This is Harry Beary. I made him for Bryce when he was two or three years old. I actually made several members of the Beary Family but the rest have moved away. Bryce would sleep with him and carry him around the house. Originally he had jeans and a shirt with a vest to match, but Bryce insisted boy bears did not wear clothes. When Bryce came home from college this semester he asked if I would but Harry in the attic, he needs the room in his closet for books and other things. Sadly Harry will be moving to the attic later today. I am very proud of the man Bryce is becoming but I miss the little boy. I am so happy to have little reminders, like Harry, of Bryce's journey to adulthood. Some day I hope to give Harry to another little boy to hold on to and love.
