Our family is quite obsessed with shoes (have you seen the cute ones the kids have on over there in the sidebar?). ‘lil Man owns the least, but even he has over ten pairs.
The first weekend I spent visiting Greg during our long-distance relationship, I swear to you he brought 6 different pairs of shoes and then we had to go back to his house to get another pair. I can’t make this stuff up.
When you walk in the door, there is a basket that holds the adult shoes. Under the bannister is another basket holding the kids’ shoes. These are just the shoes we decide to keep downstairs. There are plenty more up in our rooms.
Today, we are thankful for shoes that keep our feet warm and dry, especially on winter days.
I might not be living my life surrounded by shoes ala Carrie in Sex and the City, but I sure am living a happy life surrounded by my kids, my husband, and all their shoes. 😉
Not everyone is lucky to have shoes. I just learned that my workplace is doing a drive for http://www.shoesthatfit.org/, a charity dedicated to collecting and distributing shoes for children in need. They are asking for shoes that kids can wear outside and run and play in. This weekend, I’ll be taking the kids to help me pick out some shoes for this drive. If you’re interested in helping out, comment below and we’ll arrange a meet-up by the end of the month.
