Old News

Back earlier in the Summer, Anna needed some new tennis shoes.  I looked around for different kinds and had decided already that if I bought her shoes with laces, that she WOULD learn to tie them herself.  She had been experimenting with tying things anyway.  The 'thought' she knew how to do it already when she'd bring me a 'present' with a 'bow' on top... which was really just a twisted up piece of ribbon smashed up into a ball.  I knew she was plenty capable of learning to tie her shoes.  So after looking through the tennis shoes and having her try on pairs she liked, then running up and down the isles at the stores to see if "they were fast enough", we chose a nice, shiny pair.  She learned to tie them about the same day she got them.  She was pretty pumped.  :)

There are the freshly tied shoes!  These apparently were the 'fastest' ones at the store.  Too bad I have always tied my bows left-handed and I taught her to do it the same way, which makes them twist...
