Throwback Thursday: Brothers

All my words are being sucked up by revisions/copy edits on the new book. but I cannot overlook the two critical events of this past week. On June 23, Jake started college. And on June 25, Matt turned twenty-one. 

"How have you come to this . . . to such a place as this?" (That would sound better if Hugh Jackman were singing it."

So here you go--my first two boys through the years :)

Matthew in a rare shot from his first year without casts. (He was born with club feet, for those who didn't know him then.)

Jake in possibly my favorite picture of myself ever :) 

With Matt on our favorite beach park in Seattle.
