HOLEy Shoes

Holey Shoes! Over the course of one week, the three youngest boys all came to me saying "I need new shoes" ... Keaton's were only a couple weeks old too! His were coming apart, the sole flopping off the bottom. We actually had to duct tape them together until I could get him some new ones.  So I got THREE new pairs of shoes for THREE different boys. Which one is going to kill theirs the first and how quickly? Just a question, NOT a competition!

Another shoe note ... I noticed Cooper limping around in his Sunday shoes and realized they were 2 sizes too small! In fact the ones Colton had one were bigger! While sneakers do not last to be handed down from kid to kid, the nice dress shoes don't get much wear. Yet ... as I searched the house, not a size four dress shoe in black to be found. I did find some in brown ... I guess before the Sunday Suits the boys did mainly wear tan slacks. So I told him I pick him up a pair in black before next Sunday. I was doing some shopping at Walmart and checked the shoes there ... they had size 3, and size 5 ... but no 4.  A day or so later I stopped at Kmart ... couldn't find dress shoes for boys anywhere. Smiths Marketplace was next ... again, no size 4.  By this time it was Saturday night. Gray and I stopped at Famous Footwear after our date and finally found a pair (well, a 4 1/2) ...$10 more than anywhere else, but at that point I was just ready to be done. Finally a Four!

Daddy's Day

Grayson didn't stay in bed long enough for us to get him breakfast there, but Callahan stepped up and made pancakes. After the yummy breakfast, the boys presented Daddy with some cards they had made. I gave him the LesMiserables DVD, but Gray had actually just purchased a couple waverunners a day or so before ... so I joked that THAT was his Father's Day gift ... for the next five years! You'll see more about them in future posts I'm sure.

In the afternoon we headed out to Scott and Amy's for the annual BBQ there. While we were missing a few people, we had a bigger crowd than in recent years. It was fun for the cousins to get together and play. And this is as close to an extended family photo as we get! Happy Father's Day!  Serious smiles (above) and SILLY (below) *Ü*

My Soccer Stud

 My little Colton is a soccer stud! He really went after the ball this season and scored goals most games, and also saved many when playing on defense. He loved to play and would really look forward to his games. One week he had both a Wednesday and a Saturday game, and he said "I wish I had a game Thursday and Friday too! This was the same team he played with in the Fall (it's a Fall/Spring league). I think they only lost one game.  I gathered all my video clips and made a little muvee of the highlights.
