Growth Spurt


Douglas came home yesterday from school feeling a bit bummed. His Nike ACGs started to come apart on him. They were his favorite shoes. Time to go shoe shopping.

We get to the store and find a style we liked. I instinctively grabbed a pair of size 4-½ thinking he moved up a half-size from the 4’s he was wearing. Nope. Way, way too small. We ended up getting a size 5-½.

I asked Doug if his old shoes were hurting his feet. He said “a little”. He’s grown almost two sizes in half a year. Douglas is growing up fast.
