we live near Cleveland, northeast, about an hour from the PA border.
for a long time the school system tried to outlaw shorts and flip flops during the winter, especially when we had several feet of snow on the ground. but too many parents complained about it. they said if their kids wanted to wear shorts in the snow they should be allowed to.
my boys always said that they had Hobbit feet themselves, so the snow never bothered them. none of us like to wear shoes in our family, so it makes perfect sense to me. ha! must be our Native American blood....
okay, y'all have fun cheering on the rest of the winners! I am heading off to bed for the night. it's early, but I'm still having troubles from my radiation treatments and seizures they have caused.
will be back tomorrow to say my 'hoorahs' for all of you!
