After yesterdays You Capture, everyone was asking about the Shoe Tree.
The Shoe Tree is actually about 4 trees up at the cabin that residents have thrown, hung and even nailed their old out-grown, grungy old shoes too. I have been going up there for 9 years, and it grew from one tree to 4 (maybe 5) in that time.
Each year the kids ask, beg really, to throw their old shoes up there but I have always resisted. Their shoes may be beat up, but someone else would be able to wear them so we normally donate them.
Last year Labor Day Weekend I finally caved in.
The kids brought their old-nasty-funky- to-gross shoes up north and we threw them on.
Hunter was able to get pretty good air, and his wrapped around a branch on the first try. Again, Hunter has Mad Skills.
Boo’s however, took some work. After a few (many) tries, Hubby finally picked her up and she placed hers on a branch. It was just plain easier for her that way.
