The kids feet STINK so badly when their summer sandals get a little ripe. The stench was so bad ("What's that smell?!?") on Sunday while we were watching conference at their grandma's house that I marched them into the bathroom and ordered them into the tub. Anti-bacterial soap, warm water, and then a later soaking of the shoes themselves solved the problem...for the next few days anyway. Fall is here, and it's about time to wear socks and shoes. And pants.
Aye. Fall shopping. Now I understand what my grandma Sorensen meant when she was all, "How can you afford four kids? Kids are so expensive." Yes, especially when there are no hand me downs, and they all grow out of their clothes every season. Thrift stores, here I come!
