Noble has been wearing Alex's hand-me-down boots since bouncing bears. Since last spring, he's been wearing them a LOT. He wears them like Daddy, with a polo shirt and jeans. We bought him some cheap brown WalMart boots last month, and he wore the HECK out of them. When I had lunch with him last Friday, I noticed that the soles were flapping (you get what you pay $13 for). Luckily, Daddy and I had budgeted for just such a scenario. After school, the kids and I headed to South Texas Tack. I thought we were going to get some plain brown boots, maybe with an orange top, but when Noble saw these Anderson Beans his eyes lit up. An almost-special order later, the sweet lady found his size and that was that.
I may (ahem) also have tried on the boots I've been thinking about for months. They fit beautifully, so I had to take them home. I'm going to try not to tuck them into my jeans every time I wear them. Bubby will be so disappointed.
In other news, I love seeing what Noble does in Kindergarten. This came home yesterday.
It's a picture of Noble and Mommy at the "serces" with an elephant and a horse. He ran out of room, so he wrote "Mom" instead of "Mommy." I'll take it!
