Day 72/365 - Shoes!

What a perfect prompt for family collaboration month! There are six people in this house, three of which are girls. We'd have no shortage of material to work with.

The kids were excited about this. They immediately made a huge pile in the middle of their room. I grabbed some of mine and added them to the pile.

Then we started brainstorming. My oldest started making sketches of ideas. My oldest son started rattling off bizarre ideas and trying on my Birkenstock sandals. The younger two were of no help at all, but played nicely so the rest of us could work.

Our first idea didn't quite pan out. We realized we had a lot of pink shoes, so we tried to do a heart mosaic made of shoes. But it didn't quite work the way we wanted it to.

Our next plan worked much better and became our final project. If you can't tell what's going on, we started with the youngest boy's shoes in a heart, then my other son's, then my younger daughter, then the oldest daughter. They told me to put a pair of mine in the center "because we all came from you". Awwwwwwwww.
