I am writing in response to a comment from my sis on my last post. I thought it deserved a whole post of it’s own.
So, here is the comment: So glad you and Brayden got this opportunity!!! I’m pretty sure you are wearing tennis shoes though…and if Charlie sees that he will have a full blown heart attack. Where are your boots sis????
Ok, yah, so this is the deal…I know I am suppose to wear boots, I KNOW THIS from the top of my head to the bottom of my boots! So, this is my boot issue, first I have to tell you a sweet story. When Jim asked me to marry him we didn’t go out and get a ring right away the next day we went out and he bought me a pair of pink boots. I love them, and wore them for years! Ok, so back to the issue, I wore those pink boots until after I had Brayden and then my feet grew and I could no longer fit into those cute ‘engagement boots’ any longer. wahhhhhhhh!!!!!
So, then on to the next pair of boots which warrants another story. My dear friend Amy went to her home town in Texas, and not knowing I was having issues fitting into my pink engagement boots, just to be the sweet giving friend that she is brought me back a new pair of black roper boots, that I have cherished and loved so much! And they fit, (at the time)!!
So, then, when I had my last babe, oh my gosh, I went from starting at 8 1/2 size shoe to 9 1/2, TEN! If I kept having babies how big do you think my feet would get? So, the black ones no longer fit, so I grabbed Jim’s whenever I was riding. Well, when I went to go get them for our ride guess who was wearing them? BRAYDEN!!!! The kid has monstrous feet! Yes, so here I am scrambling for what I was going to wear. So, I did put on my ‘too short, hurt my feet boots’ for the ride, and when we got back to the trailer I said, “I HAVE TO CHANGE MY SHOES!!!!” So, I put my trusty addidas on so that my feet could breath. And that is when I realized, we needed to take pictures. So I hopped on, and click, took some pictures.
Of course, Miss Jenay would call me out on this. And I am glad, and totally get it. Now, I am just praying that Jenay’s feet won’t become a size 12 feet when she is done with number six, I’ve got your back on this prayer sis, hahahaha!
Oh, and Leanne, yes boots are required when riding horses. Why you ask? Boots have a lip at the heal to where your feet can not slip thru the stirrup. Very dangerous if this were to happen. (learn something new every day don’t you?)
