I was going through an old box (one of those ones that hasn't been unpacked even though we've moved about three times since it was originally packed....) and found a picture that my Mother took.
The little guy on the left is my youngest son, Evan and the sweetie on the right is his cousin Maddi. Look at those curls! And how they have their plump little hands on each others shoulders.
They have been the best of friends their entire lives. They are both young adults now and still fast friends.
The curls, sadly, are gone - Evan's hair is short and Maddi's is long and luxurious and not a ringlet in sight.
