To tell you the truth, I hate these boots, they always make him go slower because they are so big and chunky. But he insists on wearing them ALL the time. So while I am getting after him to hurry up he continues to whine and walk gingerly. Finally, I stopped him, after we had walked all around the church and we were heading home. I asked him, "are those boots too small for you now?" He replied, "maybe." Then I had a flash of brilliance and asked, "is there something in your boot?" He replied, "maybe there is, I don't know."
This is what I found in his boot. Four paperclips, WOW, how the heck was he walking in those at all? I spent 20 minutes running around trying to get him to hurry and all the while he was walking on these paper clips. Not sure why they were in his boot or why he kept them in there, but there they were still in pristine condition and Gage made it home with them, which is why I think they were in there in the first place!
