Preppy day.

This week is Homecoming at Hockey Boy's high school. Each day has a different dress-up theme. Wednesday was Preppy Day. Hockey's Boy high school is already a pretty traditional place, so having a Preppy Day there seemed to me to be akin to having Bathing Suit Day at the swimming pool. But nonetheless, he and others had fun taking preppy to the extreme.

When Hockey Boy came downstairs that morning, I thought he looked so adorable! But at the very mention of "Let me run get my camera," he was out the door so fast it would make your head spin. I had to be up at the school later that day to assign tuxes to the boys in choir so I took my camera along. Hockey Boy was none too thrilled when I stepped into the choir room to snap a picture, but there wasn't much he could do about it.

"Hockey Boy, the first picture I took didn't turn out too well. Could I take another one of you?"

My favorite part of his outfit was this needlepoint belt that I made for Robert when we were in college. Hockey Boy has actually worn it on other occasions as well. It comes in handy that he and his dad have the same initials!
