This past weekend I came across this photo of my son and his good friend Christopher. Coby and Christopher met as kindergarteners 9 years ago. In kindergarten they discovered that not only did they share the same birthday but were born within an hour of each other at the same hospital!
In one week these two boys will be graduating from 8th grade. In their 9 years together they have celebrated five birthdays together, had dozens of sleepovers, played on the same football and basketball teams, both been suspended the same day (not our proudest moment) both won 1st place in the school speech contest (different years) and will be heading to the same high school in 3+ months.
Graduation is next Friday, and Christopher’s’ mom and I are planning on capturing a photo with this same pose of the boys. The differences in the boys will be many but the sincerity and genuineness of their friendship will be exactly the same. It is nice to know that some things do not change!
