Friday Feature: Bunny ears and big kid shoes

While at school for a Family Fun Night a few weeks ago, I stopped to look at the artwork from John's class on the board. They had obviously been learning to tie shoes with shoelaces, that momentous point in a child's life when he graduates from velcro.
Bunny ears, Bunny ears, playing by a tree. Criss-crossed the tree, trying to catch me. Bunny ears, Bunny ears, jumped into the hole, popped out the other side beautiful and bold.
I kind of feel like I should have been the one to teach John how to tie his shoes, but honestly, he's still in velcro. The need hasn't arisen yet. When it does, though, at least he'll have a head start on knowing how to do it, even if he needs a little bit of practice.

He just may not have such fancy shoes.
