Mitchell was starting to say his shoes were too tight, and we made a stop at the shoe store during our regular Friday shopping. They said he measured OK for the ones he had, but he wanted new ones. I'm not one to limit a person to one pair, so I said OK. He picked out a completely different pair. His old ones were white Stride-Rite, and had a "baby" look to them compared to the ones he picked out. He's growing up!
