It seems like yesterday I was just sending them off to school for the first time. Now my boys are grown men. They've been taller than me for many years now. I see my neighbors with their small children and I wax nostalgic for years gone by.
My knitting friend Lisa K. had a great frame for school pictures for her boys that I admired a few years ago. When I was out shopping last year, I stumbled across the same style of picture frame and immediately bought two. Fast forward at least 12 month (or even more) and I decided to try to fill the picture frames.
I'm missing 1st grade, 10th grade and a baby picture for Primogeniture. I'm not sure what I'll do about 11th grade as he didn't order pictures that day. I'll find one from my stash and use that instead.
Secundogeniture is missing 3rd grade, 7th grade, 9th grade and his baby picture. He's a junior this year, so I'll have to wait until next fall to complete his picture frame.
So now I've really got my work cut out for me. Where in the world could I have hidden their school pictures? I hope it's not too difficult to find them. I'd really like to have a complete ensemble as it's a wonderful journey to see all these snapshots of their life in one frame.
It's really hard to believe they're almost all grown up.
