Oh my goodness. We never had backpacks as kids, but I can still remember being so excited over new shoes!

Ames said...

Yep it's that time isn't it! Our grands have already gone back to school. And we started months ago buying for the new year and packing it away in Rubbermaid containers until it was time for school.~Ames

New Shoes are the best! In fact my daughter went to school w/new shoes today - she just knew she would be the envy of the school! :-D

I hope he enjoyed school w/his new things :-)

The only thing additional I would add is a new jumper. I always liked a new jumper to wear to school.

Amy said...

New shoes make me so happy, and for little kids, it is amplified by a thousand! Your grandkids are so adorable! Glad he got some great shoes.

Lesa said...

I love when school starts because of all the new shoes, new crisp shirts, new shorts that don't have holes in them, new everything. Makes me happy! (even if my kids don't appreciate the new stuff :)

YAY for New Shoes!! and a new backpack too!! woo hoo!!! WE love new shoes... except I was examining my 8 year old son's brand new shoes from 2 weeks ago, and they already look trashed and smell like they need to be burnt in the fireplace.. That boy!! LOL Happy Tuesday Sue!!

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

Oh how CUTE! I know that I never turn down getting new shoes or bags- 2 of my most favorite things!

I would have loved a backpack when I was a kid..and I so looked forward to new shoes! We used to have to bring a new pair of tennis shoes for gym the first day too...then when the year was over I was always bummed out because they looked new still and yet they didn't fit anymore! Your Grandkiddos are so cute!

Cheryl said...

Naw. Shoes don't do it for me. New NASCAR Tees work wonders for my outlook. ^_~

Cherie said...

Yes! What is it about new shoes that just says "too cool for school!" (wink).
I love the shoe pictures every year.

Stef said...

That's all I seem to spend my money on these days. I turn around and someone else has grown out of their shoes.
Me, personally, I love a good shoe...tennies are my favs.

Connie said...

My kids would always inform everyone that their new shoes were "speedy" shoes. Then they'd run as fast as they could to prove their point.
What a cute grandson you have!

Caroline said...

He is TOO cute for words!! These must be "first day of school" pictures? I love them. And seeing pictures like these always bring back memories of the excitement I had when I was young and starting a new school year!

Pondside said...

What a sweetie!
New shoes make me happy too! I just sent off a box to my wee grandsons in the east, with two pairs of shoes for each of them.

Darlene said...

Who doesn't like new shoes? Especially if they fit! I guess I am going to have to donate most of my shoes because they all hurt my feet since I have this awful neuropathy that causes my nerve pain in my left leg my back. I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and buy some of those shoes that my friend Verna bought. They cost about $250 or more. She has the same problem that I have, Hers isn't caused from diabetes either.

I do love the look of brand new shoes and they look so cute on our wonderful grandhildren, your grand and my great grand. That Bryce is so darned cute. The other day Dick was looking at his pictures and he said, "Bryce is the cutest boy I have ever seen!" He is so photogenic and he is so used to having his picture taken that he ought to be a model, although I know Heather would never allow it.

You can feel it in the air! Fall, school...there's such an electric feeling with it all.

But I'm finding myself struggling not to feel envious of the moms who just started sending kiddos off. Summer was too short!

Leovi said...

Beautiful, I love this composition with excellent feet, very good.

Jenny said...

Oh, I love how excited they are over new shoes and new backpacks! Awwww...

Dixie Mom said...

Back to school rules!!

Joy For Your Journey said...

Ah yes, the new shoes!! That was always a big day for my kids. Although we did have a disaster once. I had just bought new shoes for my second grade daughter and my kindergarten son when they decided to race them in the house to see who was the fastest. My daughter tripped and fell--and broke both of her arms. It was two days before school started and a day before I went into labor with my fourth daughter.

Fun times. :-)
