A panicked Ty jumped out of bed Thursday night. He needed a tie for picture day. I purchased one on Friday for today's photos. When he got off the bus he immediately started wearing his red, black and white tie with a graphic maroon printed tee shirt. I was suddenly a bit worried about this purchase. On Saturday we walked around our neighborhood yard sale and he wore his tie with a hoodie. Monday was starting to look like a looming battle. On Sunday we started to pull out school clothes and Ty decided the tie would look great with a pastel green striped dress shirt. Mommy pointed out the color combination didn't match. Lauren had some "cool kid" suggestions and in the end, everyone is pretty pleased with the final decision.
