They didn't have what I was looking for. :(
K, however, has been wearing the same LL Bean "nature girl" shoes since the beginning of school when the dreaded Skechers gave out a few weeks in. (Never again.) They have served her well, but her feet have grown. She was having some foot problems as of late. She twisted her left foot and made it angry. In checking out the fit of her shoes, I realized that there wasn't a whole lot of room left.
Guess who scored a new pair of shoes when Mom was the one supposed to be getting some? She measured at a 4 1/2, but those aren't the easiest to find. We bumped her up to a 5. Though I wear a 6-6 1/2, I can comfortably wear these shoes. I told K that now when she grows out of her shoes, she can pass them on to me.
The third grade. Who knew? Sharing shoes with the kid.
