These Boots Are Made For Splashin'

Preschool teachers see their fair share of young fashions, let me tell you! I saw expensive clothes, hand-me-down clothes, matched outfits and outfits I knew only a child could put together. I zipped hundreds of parkas, buckled oodles of snowpants overalls, slipped on innumerous boots! But, what I loved were those cute rubber boots that the kids would don on rainy days. I said to them, "I love your boots!!! I wish I had a pair! If only they would make them in my size!!"
Well, this past weekend when we were in Galena, I came upon a shop with adult sized boots shown off outside the entrance to the store. Not only shown, but on SALE. I halted my group,nearly hyperventillating...I had to try them on! Could they? Would they?
Slipping on the the boot...could it be these will fit?
Both boots on now...they're feeling like they were made for me!
My new boots are pink and they have wildly prancing ponies on them. Bring on the rain! This girls' wish finally came true!

Why did I ever think that the boots you were looking at were a basic plaid or something of that nature. OF COURSE they are pink with yellow PONIES!!! How perfectly perfect for you. :) To quote High School Musical, I'm glad you "finally found what you were looking for!"

Well I have to admit that I just read every single one of your posts! I feel like I've learned so many interesting facts and details! I love how you manage to share information, tell stories, and keep in touch with family members all at the same time! I definitely look forward to reading more posts from you. Life sure gets crazy but reading some of your posts reminds me of how much I've missed keeping in touch with all the amazing women I've been blessed to work with at the library. You are truly inspiring! Thanks for the pleasure of reading your blog! Can't wait to keep in touch by email more frequently. Reading your blog almost makes me want to start one for myself!
