About Elias

Tell us a little about yourself:
I’m Elias. I live in a house in Canada. I like to take pictures, jump on the trampoline with my Daddy, play with trains and go to the library. I like spending time with my family.

What do you think you might take photos of?
I will take pictures of our whole house and outside, and our family.

What do you think it might be like to be 100 years old?
It might feel like being a dad.

Elias’ mom, Katie adds:
Elias is the second born in a family of five kids. He has one older sister who is seven and three younger brothers who are four, two and five months. He gets very excited when a new baby is born. He is half American as I was born and raised in the United States, but for now only has citizenship in Canada, where he was born. His daddy works for an engineering firm and I stay home and take care of him and his siblings and home school them. He is in first grade this year and learning to read. Elias helps clean up around the house and take care of his younger siblings, especially the baby. I sometimes find that he has changed a diaper when I wasn’t looking. He loves to help out. His best friends are his brothers and sister and his cousins. He loves nearly anything to do with science and is very curious about everything around him and how it works. Elias is also quite a goof ball, but then so are the rest of our kids, so he fits right in.
