Story time socks

I hate socks. Even in the winter. Well, that's not completely true, because they do keep my feet warm. But, in the summer? Never!!! I'm not even really a big fan of shoes to tell you the truth. When I was growing up on the farm in po-dunk, North Dakota, I never wore shoes in the summer. I would run around barefoot EVERYWHERE, and I loved it. I learned to drive barefoot, and I wish I never had to wear shoes ever.

But I digress...

Today, because I found a TOTALLY cute book about Socks, I decided that it would be a good story time idea. So, even though I am not a fan, I am sure the kids will be!!

WHOOOOT for Tuesday!! Of course, it's FMRNS!! YAY!!! A and I were able to get together last week for a Bonus Night Double Feature, and we watched a couple of fabulous movies (as if you had any doubt!). Friday night's double feature included The Littlest Rebel, a Shirley Temple movie from 1935, and Aliens, a horror from 1986 with Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn.

I'm not 100% sure what we are going to watch tonight - there are quite a few options. We have SO many to choose from!! A couple of possible choices are The Bells of St. Mary's, a drama from 1945, with Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman. Another possible choice is All the Mornings of the World (Tous les matins du monde), a foreign film from 1991 with Jean-Pierre Marielle and Gerard Depardieu. But there are quite a few others... I'll be sure to let you know which one we pick!!

I love your story selection! And for the record...I'm all about the flip flops in the summer/spring/fall.....only wear socks in the winter.

I also hate anything on my feet. In the winter, I avoid socks by wearing UGG boots outside (no socks required) and some nice fuzzy slippers inside :)
