These Made Me Happy

On Friday, I resumed substitute teaching at our local school district. It was a great day and very easy duty. I spent the day substituting for one of the high school art teachers. I had classes from Art 1 to Art 3 and even a couple of independent study Art 4 students. I really enjoyed seeing their artwork and chatting with them.

Several of the girls in one of the classes had on very cute shoes. They were made by Tom's Shoes. I've heard of Tom's Shoes before; I saw the founder on some television show. For every pair of shoes they sell, they give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for one. You can't beat that. And, these shoes are seriously cute and look very comfortable.

This last pair of shoes is not made by Tom's. In fact I couldn't tell what brand they were, but I really liked them too.


  1. I recently read an article about Blake Mycoskie, founder of Tom's shoes. What an amazing young man, and an incredible company! I'm yet to own a pair myself, but I've often complemented people on their snazzy footwear and they reply, "They're Tom's". I love it that the high school students you were working with were hip to Tom's!
