One day without shoes

Today we participated in TOMs One Day without Shoes to raise awareness for children who live without shoes.
The day started out cold and rainy!  Henry insisted on wearing shorts... which makes sense if you are going barefoot all day (right?).  He was a little reluctant to get out of the van during the downpour.

The preschool director allowed Henry attend preschool barefoot this morning saying she supports raising awareness for children who live without shoes.  She also invited Henry's classmates to join him.
We were so excited to see Henry's best friend and their teachers barefoot when we arrived at school!
Several of Henry's friends in his class were also barefoot for one day.
Henry's Aunt Shawn and friend also went barefoot.
It was a great day of conversation and awareness.

Good for you!! It was in the 30s up here and I just couldn't do it! First time in several years and I feel bad. Sounds like you made the most of it!!
