Yep, you heard me! My son wound up with Goodwill duds for his big day!
I went to 4 other stores before I hit GW up. He is in such an awkward size right now. He is tall and thin like his Dad of course. Boys clothes do not fit him, and Men's clothes are iffy, depending.
I think he looked pretty darned good.
He was happy with the duds...and for a whopping $20.00 Mom done good!
The suit jacket came from Goodwill. Tie is Mike's and he had the black shirt already.
He has that serious look. He said he felt very grown up tonight.
Of course some of the Kid's wanted to know if that was Mike's Jacket...he said, ummmm...you see my Dad he is 6'4 LOL!
Ok the shoes...all Italian leather, looked never worn...$3.50!
These fine young men are in the ROTC program in High school. Alex is planning to do ROTC. Although, he has no desire to join the Military. He is looking forward to the experience of training and learning. (
really he wants muscles I think to impress the girls...I'm just sayin)
He is excited, and says he is up for the challenge, and that it will be.
And there he is amongst the other class mates whom also received this honorable award.
We are in a wonderful school system. Our experience here has been nothing but positive and very promising for the future.
Thank you for sharing our special day.
Can you believe Alex let me post about himAGAIN?
I think it's pretty cool of him..I won't push it much longer though...
I love you Alex!!~
