Cowboy week at school is always impressive with this teacher. They make stick horses and marshmallow guns and the teacher sews vests and holsters and provides hats. The kids are full-blown cowboys by the end of the week.
When I picked up Bennett, his teacher told me that he was the fastest boy in the horse race. When I asked Bennett about it, he excitedly told me it was his shoes. They’re really fast shoes – faster than any other shoes he’s ever had. That’s why he won the race. He plans on wearing them again in case someone wants to race him.
That’s what you get when you put tennis shoes on an Arizona boy – he’s so used to running in flip flops that the minute he has real shoes on (which is a rare occasion) they really do make him run faster!
