No time to write, having spent all day on chores, errands, schoolwork, and baseball, but there has been progress.
Boy 2 modeled his beloved mitten for a photograph.
I had to pry said mitten (note that at this time there is only ONE) off of said boy at the bus stop this morning. He was fully prepared to commit to a full day of one-mitten-dom in 98 degree heat. That, too, is love.
