We definitely don't have the humidity problem during most of the summer anymore! lol It was SUUUUPER dry all summer long - and it's only been too muddy to play outside (like literally our yard is flooded right now) for the past week or so. I wish it rained more in the summer like it used to - I have such fond memories of playing outside in the summer rain...now you can't use summer and rain in the same sentence anymore.
Oh, I see. Our church is pretty mixed, people get dressed up and people just come as they are, it's kind of nice.

Last summer was pretty dry here too. I love playing in the summer rain!

When I was a kid we didn't even have rain boots or play shoes, in the summer we went barefoot except in public. Drove my mother insane though, the carpets were always nasty

Hmm, it would certainly be nice to only have one work boot, I wonder if there's some way to make a fleece moccasin like liner to go inside. Some of the Lands End boots have removable liners, which gave me the idea.

On a slightly different note, have you had success with any non-Muck brand adult boot lasting for more than a year? I'm thinking of trying these Tingleys out for me and DH. Adult Mucks are not in the budget right now after the spending spree for the girls.

I don't have any experience with adult rubber boots. I keep trying to talk DH into getting a pair to wear at the barn when he's washing horses or cleaning stalls so he doesn't go through a pair of boots every 6 months, but I have yet to succeed. Too much hassle to change boots I guess.

I recommend Amazon or 6pm. At Amazon you can get 20% off if you subscribe to their shoe emails. I got a pair of salt water sandals for $18

Now typically that doesn't happen and kids will either suddenly tell you their shoes hurt or will have a hard time getting them on, or for little ones the parent will notice. Shoes can literally be fine one day and too small the next. You just never know not everytimr will you catch it the very day they are too small.
Uh, my vote goes to 5 Princess Mommy who obv has had lots of experience with shoe fitting on her 5 kiddos!!
