red gown again

No garden today, because bigger things were happening. Secondo graduated from middle school, so it was take two for the red nylon gown. I was sweating it a bit, because he is shorter than Primo was at the same age, but he had a little growth spurt (well, kind of a big growth spurt, he grew 8 inches in two years) and managed to lengthen himself enough to make it work, at least as much as a red nylon gown can work.

Where did three years go? It really doesn't seem that long since Primo made the same journey across the stage. It makes me tremble for how quickly the next year will go. Before I know it, we will be waving goodbye as Primo heads off for college and our family will change forever and...

No need to get ahead of myself, I suppose. For tonight, let's celebrate Secondo and his milestone and leave it at that. He is headed off to the same magnet high school as Primo, who is thrilled Secondo will be joining him. What hasn't changed? The brotherly bond I wrote about three years ago. If anything, it is stronger, and that is truly something to celebrate.

Before I know it, this guy will be in the red gown himself, though they will probably never give up photobombing each other... At least, I hope not.
