JT and V have been friends since they were 4 years old.  Even the two years that V spent at school overseas in the 4th and 5th grade could not dim their friendship.  V’s about to make another relocation with his family and he will attend high school in Florida.   Last weekend, when a bunch of 8th graders attended a performance of Richard III in NYC (they had read it in English class this year), V came to the city with me and JT.  They took a look around Times Square and were largely unimpressed.
 We were early to the theater so we got some lunch and then rolled into the giant Toys R Us on Times Square.  And teenagers that they are, the boys quickly got into the spirit of things.
Even Thomas the Tank Engine had one last tour of duty.
I love the fact that these boys have been friends for so long that they aren’t afraid to goof around and be kids with another.  Even better is their shared assumption that Florida isn’t that far away when one is armed with instant messaging and air travel.
