So, this morning, my boys got dressed, with no prompting from me, in their brand-new shirts and ties. They were supposed to have a basketball game tonight, and on game days, the team dresses up.
I had to snap a picture, and as us Moms are wont to do, I got all nostalgic remembering a time when they were younger when they wore ties, so I had to find the picture I was thinking of, so I could post the comparison.
Here they are in December 2006:
And now, in January 2015:
When I first showed the shirts to Mark, he was concerned the sleeves would be way too long (I got them the same size I got him: 16 neck, 36/37 sleeve). Clearly, the sleeve length is NOT an issue.
Unfortunately, the weather is an issue: no games tonight after all. All dressed up with no place to go, except HOME, where it’s warm.
Edited to add: I should have just posted the pictures side by side before. Here they are that way, too:

They’re like puppies and kittens. They grow so fast. Very handsome young men.

Great progress report. They have grown to be such handsome young men. You must be so proud.
