This was the scene in my front room the other night as I worked on dinner.
Jaxon and Colby each with one of Jaxon's shoes and Kyah with the lace up page of her quiet book.
The lesson for the evening? Shoe Tieing 101.
I have purposely put off giving my kids tie shoes for one main reason - it's more work for the parent...but your kids can't stay in velcro forever. We bought these shoes for Jax at the beginning of school and we've been tieing them every morning, but never again.
After a little time and a little practice - Jaxon can now tie his own shoes.
Colby does a great job at being willing to teach the kids.
As a Mom/wife these are moments when I love to peek my head in, maybe snap a picture or two and quietly walk back into the kitchen with a big smile on my face.
Jax is so proud of himself! He is still having a little bit of trouble with the double knot part, but he's getting there. Way to go buddy! (Thanks honey!)
