In a few hours these two will say goodbye to each other. I am dreading it.
I like to call them the adventure boys.
They are the epitome of boyhood. Collecting rocks. Playing with sticks. Climbing trees. Inventing games. Building Legos. Laughing hard. Whispering in the back seat of the car.
They’ve been the best of friends since day one seven years ago.
They were only THREE. They looked like this:
They’ve had some pretty amazing adventures.
They are the same in so many ways. (skin tone not being one of them.)
There are going to be tears today. Ten year old boy tears. The kind that break mommas’ hearts. The kind that are real and flow freely. It’s going to suck big chickens. (favorite saying of my big brother and me.)
But I know these boys will have more adventures together in the future. They’re already looking for them.
We love you Christopher!
