Christine Donato at the library once described how her mother still took her to shop for school shoes after she reached adulthood. Chris was a school librarian before she retired and came to work with us. Her father continued that tradition after her mother passed away. I loved that story, especially since my daughter is a school librarian. After hearing the story, I began taking her to shop for school shoes. We had not done that since she was a student.
Yesterday, Rob, Grace and I visited two shoe stores, the Little Shoe Box and Nordstrom. It was a successful trip. Grace is wearing the pair she picked in the photo. Black patent leather MaryJanes, requested by her mom, are in the bag.
