One of the many things on my To Do (or To Try To Do) list yesterday was to clean the corner of the kitchen that houses all the coats, boots, shoes, hats, mittens and gloves, sports stuff and whatever else gets dumped there as children and husband come in the door. (I, of course, never dump anything there. Nope, not me!)
Julia was home and while I cleaned out the shoe bins and boot tray, I asked her to sort the shoes and boots into pairs.
A bit later she summoned me to take a look at her work.
(Please 'scuse the dirt – I cleaned all that up after the shoes went into their freshly cleaned-out bins.)
She was SO proud of her work – and the whole arrangement – that I took pictures. First of the shoes, and then of her proud little face.
Oh, and yes, her shirt is on backwards. I already told her. "I know. I like it that way!" is her response. Every time.
