In this week's edition of Kristen's fun carnival I decided to do a semi-continuation on photos from two weeks ago. Otherwise known as the infamous corrective shoe photos.
However, the following photos reveal a fate worse than corrective shoes: Foot surgery! No matter how much I wore those fabulous shoes, it would not change the fact that I had to have foot surgery. It was inevitable. For reasons unknown to me, my left foot was not growing properly. Now there is some speculation as to my twin sister "lying on it in the womb" which resulted in some sort of stunted growth, but I'm not buying that story. Sorry, Mom.
So when I was about 8 years old, I had my first foot surgery. I don't remember what month my surgery took place, but I do remember having to take some summer school classes. Nothing better than crutches during a HOT South Alabama summer. Can you say torture? Once the armpit callouses formed, I was pretty much good to go. As the photos reveal, the cast did not slow down my summer fun! Check out those tennis shoes would you.
For more flashback fun I encourage to click on over to We are THAT Family and check out some of the other posts or even post some of your own. This is one of the best things going on in blog world on Thursdays. Really!
