I think part of the excitement of ordering items online is the absolute thrill of waiting for it to arrive. Months ago, the kids went online and ordered KEEN shoes. They finally arrived. The excitement in our house was like the kids had just received Christmas presents in April! My daughter, who at 10 years old, doesn’t usually get too excited about much – actually screamed a little when the shoes arrived. We had to try them on immediately and I had to sing the silly “brand new shoes song.” (Yeah, we have a song for when we get new shoes – doesn’t everyone?). We are all excited to try the shoes out on one of our hikes this next weekend! But why didn’t I think if mail-ordering shoes before now?!?!?
