After several Sundays (okay, four years) of Raynes wearing tennis shoes to church I decided it was high time he wore some proper church clothing on Sundays. Now how to shop for a little boy?
As luck would have it, we had some time to kill at the mall on Veteran’s Day (did you know that AMC theater now has assigned seating?! Which is great if you know in advance that you are going to the movie, but bad if you show up last minute with your younger children). So with an hour to kill in between show times we stopped into Belks where we found slacks, a blazer (with gold buttons that R loves). There was a selection of ties and Raynes quickly went to the bow ties and knew exactly which ones he wanted. He felt like a big boy and proudly walked into the 9:45 SUN service with us (a first!) sporting his new duds. And to top it all off, Pastor Wayne was also wearing his signature bow tie and managed to snap this photo. Church and bowties!
