|The day started off rainy but warm and the girls were excited.|
|Our toes were primed and ready to go!|
|Lindsey's teachers were surprised to see her bare toes!|
|Christin was loving it!|
By the time I left Whole Foods it was freezing!!!!! So freezing in fact that my poor mom, who had the girls, wound up at Payless buying shoes and socks! (I had packed flip-flops but they just weren't cutting it)
So what did we learn from this experiment?
Lindsey says, "some people don't have shoes!!!"
Christin said, "My feet were freezing. I learned that I am blessed to have a Nana who buys me shoes and blessed to have lots of shoes at home" (George and I discussed having a One Day Without Food to inspire the same kind of feelings at mealtime but we thought there may be some legality issues with that;) (PS. In case there are any people getting up in arms right now that I don't feed my children, I do, don't worry!)
Finally, what did I learn? I learned how blessed I am to have so many shoes and how painful it would be to go without. My feet still hurt today! It was so sad for me to think that my child's birthmother may be one of those without shoes. I could barely handle it in good health. I can't imagine going barefoot everyday while pregnant.
The next time you are looking for shoes, please consider Toms! They are a little pricey but really you are getting two pairs of shoes:)
