day 144: brothuhs

This picture was taken 3 1/2 years ago, but when I was flipping through photos today I looked at it and got a little misty.  These are my two youngest boys on the day #4 was baptized.  I have seen these two go from friends to enemies to best friends to acquaintances, and back again.  They make me happy.  #3 is as tall as me now, with typical 13 yr-old concerns, and when I look at this photo I can't believe how fast time flies.  #4 will be in jr high next year.  He is a bit shy and is very hard on himself.  The boys are turning into young men.  I guess I signed up for that, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.  sigh

Aw, that's about how old my boys will be in three years. I am so amazed how fast it goes. But it is a blessing to see them growing into nice kids.

Look at that adorable little toothless grin. Love it. :)

You have a lot to be proud of in all four of your sons. And yes, time DOES fly.

Awwww cute! You don't realize how grown up they are until you see pictures like this. What a difference 3 years makes!

I always think of how much further ahead you are as a mother than I am, but my kids are the age of yours in that photo and 3 1/2 years doesn't seem that long, I can't believe how time flies. It is flabbergasting.
