News Flash: The Stork Delivered Big Foot

I had to buy my oldest daughter, twelve year old Kora, size 10 tennis shoes today.

I've always had a long foot - I was wearing a size 9 by the time I was 10 years old. And so was Kora; I had hoped she would stop there as I had. And she did - for a while. (In contrast, her 10 year old sister Aubrey wears a 7 or 7.5) Then she needed 9.5. OK, so do I ever since my 4th baby. But last week, her 9.5 size tennis shoes were rubbing her toes. So I had to bite the bullet, and go shoe shopping.

For size 10!

If she doesn't stop soon, I'll have to special order her shoes off the internet.

Too funny, Tami! Wow....10??? Celeste is our big foot here. So far she's at a 9.5, which is probably more understandible with a Daddy who wears a 15/16. We'll see where she tops off!

I wonder how tall Kora will be?

Well if it makes you feel any better, two of her aunts(Sarah and I) both wear a size 10. Sarah wore an 11 for a while, but finally went back down a size. So she is in good company. :)
