Grammy generously bought the kids tennis shoes for kindergarten. Caden wanted something superhero and Ethan was looking for anything Toy Story related. Addison and Grammy were determined to get on the fad bandwagon of Twinkle Toe Shoes. They found them. If you don't know what Twinkle Toes shoes are it's Dorothy's ruby red slippers on crack: Rhinestones, foil, glitter, and blinking colored strobe lights that could be used to find a kid in the thickest fog. The boys' shoes were velcro but Addison's had shoe laces. A few weeks before school started I worked with her a bit on learning to tie her own shoes. She did okay for her first time.
