So the kids need new shoes. Alex wants checkerboard Vans, Sarah wants gold ballet flats, Sam wants the same exact kind of "slide-ons" as last year...camo with the army jet. Of course Target doesn't have the same as last year and I'm really hoping he doesn't decide he wants Vans because I'm counting on a $15 pair of shoes for the little guy. There are just no cool and cheap "slide-ons" around here at this moment...except for at Wal-Mart...on sale for $8, but mis-marked so actually $6. Hard to hate Wal-Mart at a moment like this. And Sam says this is the bestest day of his life so far because of his new robot shoes. Suh-weet!
