Meilani: Now officially has bigger feet than I do. Size 9. She opted for some sporty purple/white Nike's which, upon checkout, we learned are a brand new style and weren't supposed to be on the shoe floor yet. My trendy girl seemed quite pleased with this bit of news.
Eli: Quite easy to please when it comes to clothes and shoes, he went with the first pair he took off the shelf. He then pointed out the shoes he's had for the last couple of years. His memory is incredible. He's wearing a size 4 and wanted to be sure I thought his shoes would match his first day outfit.
Sariah: The only one who didn't go with Nike this year. Our true to form spunky girl was over the moon about her "awesome" twinkle toe light up Sketchers. When shopping for dress shoes for my sister's wedding a couple months back Sariah left the store in tears when I wouldn't buy her twinkle toes. I told her then that "maybe when school starts," thinking to myslef that it was unlikely we'd find them again, but hoping she'd forget. She did not. Twinkle toes were all I heard about on the shoe front all summer long. Sigh of relief that Penny's carried them!
Liam: Wearing the same size shoes as his older sister. His hands are bigger than hers too. He surprisingly wasn't drawn to the character light up variety anymore and instead, wanted to be sure his shoes could make him go really fast. He even demonstrated in the aisle. Thankfully, I was able to talk him into velcro rather than laces, so he can put them on himself.
Seth: My dad said to be sure and get Seth shoes too, so I did, and boy it's a good thing too, because I don't think this shopping experience would have been so pleasant if I tried to leave without shoes for our shoe fetish boy. I attempted to get Seth to try on a cheap pair of little tennis shoes but the little punk kept pushing them away saying "NO!" He insisted on trying on these black/yellow Nike's and then proceeded to prance around the store in them. I sent the girl to get me a bigger size and while she was gone again tried to get Seth excited about the less expensive white/blue pair. He wasn't havin' it! Alas, the bumble bee variety it is. Why not? Papaw's buying.
