A few years ago Ron decided that he wanted a pair of Chuck Taylor Converse shoes. (He might be just a little bit of a Dr. Who fan…) So he bought a pair of blue Chucks. He started wearing them everywhere, including with his suit to church. After a while, the blue Chucks wore out, so we replaced them with an awesome bright red set. We started to realize that everyone around us loved his shoes and were especially happy to see him wearing them with his suit.
Enter Jack (who may also be a bit of a Dr Who fan). He asked one day if he could have a pair of Chucks too. So for his birthday that year his awesome Aunt “Bernie” bought him his first pair of Chucks. As soon as he started wearing them people started asking when we were all going to wear them. So last year when we were getting ready for family pictures I got the great idea for everyone to get a pair in their favorite color. So we all started wearing the converse shoes and it very much became our “thing”. So when we decided that we wanted to adopt, we had to get the baby a pair of shoes. These adorable little converse shoes are sitting here waiting to be filled with the sweet little feet of a baby.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, to get to know all about the crazy things we do, the fun we have, and the love we want to share. I hope that this journal will become a great place for us to share more about our family and the awesome things we get to do.
