Daddy Steve: What happened to our chilly spring days? This weekend the temperature at Gregoropolis hit 92°F (33°C)! It was definitely time to get the boys into their summer clothes. I started with Sasha and Miguel. Earlier this spring I ordered two striped shirts from Ginny--identical patterns in complimentary colorways.
That last part was very important--Sasha can get some charmingly bizarre ideas. When Miguel came to live with us, he was Sasha's first brother who was roughly his same age-1968. I think Miguel is probably from earlier in that year, while Sasha is later.
Miguel's arrival; looking a bit grubby and wearing quite possibly the ugliest homemade cardigan ever.
Anyway, Sasha immediately came to the conclusion that they were long-lost twin brothers! The fact that they don't look too much alike did not deter him.
Miguel is a shy little boy. He's more than happy to let Sasha take the lead in everything, so he was completely on board with Sasha's twin theory. Because Miguel is so bashful he doesn't appear in the blog often, which is a shame because he's very handsome and unique. His eyes have radiating lines in the irises; a style that appeared for only a short time in 1968, and only on Gregors. His nearly black (and non-falling) hair has a very neat and defined rooted part at the crown; more like the girls have.

Although Sasha and Miguel are definitely fraternal twins, they share the same close bond that twins are noted for having.
Sasha: Hello, twin brother!
Miguel: ¡Hola, mi hermano gemelo!
June is the month of Gemini, The Twins, so Gregoropolis salutes twins everywhere; both actual and honorific.
