Have a tie-tying lesson.
Laugh at them.
Put them on your blog.
Just don't make them mad.
Myyy, that's a long tie you've got there, mister.
Every month we get together with our friends Richard and Loraine and their son Kyler, who is Alec's age, for a family home evening lesson out of the Preach My Gospel manual to prepare our boys for serving a mission. Last month we thought it would be fun to learn how to tie ties, now that the boys are to the age where clip-on ties just don't hold the same appeal. We all gave it a go, but soon I retreated behind the lens of my camera to document this "coming of age" ritual for posterity.
Not because I couldn't tie a tie or anything.
It's not like it's rocket science.
It went something like...the rabbit goes around the trunk of the tree, down into the hole, up and around again...
