Keeping Up With the Joneses

Yesterday I was scheduled to take pictures of the Jones girls. This has been rescheduled a few times because of weather issues. We decided no matter what the weather holds, this was going to take place! It was cold and windy but the show must go on. The poor girls were freezing and the wind was blowing their hair. Here are a few of the pictures:

All-Region Band

Trey auditioned for All-Region band a few weeks ago. There were around 40 schools from our region that came to audition. He plays trumpet in the 7th grade band. We are happy to announce that he made 2nd chair All-Region! He was beat out of 1st chair by a girl, I'm not too sure he is happy with that! He will have a concert in February. This is the first time that he had to audition for something with the trumpet. We are very proud of him!

Big Foot

I have Big Foot living in my house. Trey told me that he needed a new pair of shoes. We drove into town and went on our search. I didn't know that a size 14 shoe is not that common in our part of the state.

This is the conversation I had with the Hibbits salesman:

Salesman (SM): "Can I help you find anything?"

Me: "It will be easier to tell me what you have in a size 14"

SM: "Let me go in the back to look what we have" (comes out with 2 shoes in a 14) "We only have these 2 styles in a 14"

Trey tries on each shoe, one being an Under Armour shoe (I didn't even know they made shoes) and a Nike that looked like an old mans shoe.

SM: "At least his foot should stop growing soon"

Me: "What age do kids feet usually stop growing?"

SM: "It's normally around age 16 or 17"

Me: "Well I still have a while because he just turned 13"

SM: Loss of words and look on his face was priceless

Unfortunately we did not walk out of there with a pair of shoes. The Under Armour shoes fit the best, but they were also white mesh and $100. My kid is too rough on shoes for me to pay that kind of money for shoes!

I guess we better find a shoe that fits, stick with it and just keep ordering bigger sizes.

What am I going to do with him??
