their own style

the {big} boys needed new shoes
I let them pick the pair they wanted online

they looked
they thought
they looked more
they thought more
they decided
we ordered
they waited

Dad drove them to the elevator to pick them up

there was no waiting to get home to open the boxes

the boys came running through the door to show me
they were thrilled with their new shoes
And the shoes they picked out are....
each their own unique style
shoes that are so them
...it makes me {grin}

  2. Happy shoes. Reminds me of when my mom would order me some new things from the Sears catalog... 50 yrs ago. (Ok, mine were new panties and a slip, but a package is always fun!)

  3. I love watching my kids pick out shoes! They are all so unique to their own styles and likes. Isn't it amazing how God has fashioned each one of our children so uniquely? I just love it. Love the pic of the shoes, too. :-)

    I realize that I only know pieces about you and your family, but I just wanted to say that I admire the family you are raising. A family of love, individuality, community health, faith and laughter. Thank you for sharing bits of your family with us. When you have a discouraging or bad day, please remember that you are being thought of and prayed for. Keep raising those Godly babies!
