He loved those sandals so much that we were a little worried about how he would react when he outgrew them, which kids are known to do. He just wanted to keep squeezing his feet in them, no matter how tight they got. Finally the weather was cold enough this fall that we decided we couldn't let him wear his sandals any more, and we would have to introduce him to a new pair of shoes.
So, Grandma D got him a new pair of tennis shoes. Initially he wasn't too keen on them, which is a nice way to say that he ran kicking and screaming and hid under the dining room table when we showed them to him. But, eventually he let us pry his new shoes onto his feet, and it didn't take long for him to realize they were comfortable and they were warmer than his old sandals were.
