On the homeschool webgroup to which I belong, every once in a while, one of the moms will break out of the I'm-a-mom-with-nothing-special mode that we're all supposed to adopt and post what we call a "Mommy Brag." This is when we announce something wonderful that one of our kids has done.
When Matthew was home on leave this winter, my boys went and did something nice. They stooped to having their pictures taken for me. Not something they usually enjoy, this time I really gave them little choice; I made and paid for the appointment, although I did not go along and remind them to smile. As you can see, though they did. I suspect the photographer was an attractive young woman, although I'm told one of the guys needed the stuffed animal and funny noises to crack a smile!
Don't they look great? The two standing, from left to right, are Ethan and Matthew. Jay is down in front. Jay and Matthew are all but taken; Ethan is available, as far as I know. A lucky young lady would have to wait for him to finish Basic Training and AIT, but I will be accepting applications to share with him when he's done! Just leave them in the comments section.
