So it was time to retire them. I thought about just taking them out of the basket and not even saying anything to the girls about it. But then I realized that as soon as CJ found out her favorite pair of shoes had been stolen away from her, she would be devastated. Best course of action - having a goodbye ceremony. Did I ever think I would have a goodbye ceremony for a pair of shoes? Nope. Funny where life takes you.
Charissa put her shoes on and did a last dance. Verity decided she'd rather put the shoes on Buddy. Sweet little girl in her Mr. T shirt. :)
After our goodbyes were said the girls put their shoes inside a box and that was the end.
Have I told them that the shoes are going in the trash? No. But I didn't make up some line about sending them to someone else or saving them either. Poor stinky shoes. They had a good run. :)
