I went school shoe shopping with Emily. I saw these shoes, and they were marked down to $7!! Now, if I had been a teen or pre-teen and stumbled onto these, I would have considered them a gift from heaven for being a good girl. Also I would have possibly died from joy. Emily didn't necessarily like them--she says she's not a bright color girl. She tried them on and then went to try on something she liked better. I told her to go ahead, break my heart. It would be a sin to pass on a gift like this. Eventually she chose another ok and reasonably priced shoe and DECIDED TO GET THESE, TOO! Phew. Crisis averted.
To my great surprise, Hayden chose these on his own without any encouragement from me. Hooray! Also, his feet are getting freaky huge.
