The photo below shows my wife and I with our oldest son on the day he graduated from elementary school three years ago. Now he is finishing middle school, and next week will be considered a high school freshman. (His younger brother, meanwhile will move from elementary school to middle school.)
As the picture shows, some things change, and some things don't. My wife still blinks for pictures, but if the three of us were positioned the same way, you'd never know it, as our son is now as tall as she is and would completely block her from view.
