We're getting ready to head north for our annual camping trip. JT's gotten his summer flea-and-tick haircut. Last week, I ordered up his annual pair of outdoor sandals. Keens, of course. They are waterproof, durable, and can be consigned to the dishwasher if they need a thorough cleaning. They belong to an 11 year old boy, by the way, so a thorough cleaning is often required. This year's pair are men's size 9.5, a sure sign that time is marching on with a pace I find awfully quick.
