Tradition: Burying Shoes

Before Julie and I had children we started a family tradition: we would bury shoes in the yard of our rental before we relocated to the next rental. (We moved during the winter once, the ground was too hard to dig with a spade so we threw shoes up in to a tree to hang.)

We have been in our current rental for over three years, so today was our first chance to bury shoes with our children. They loved it. As they say in Fiddler on the Roof, “Tradition!!!”


The shoes are in the ground. Goodbye, Indiana.
Now, we are ready to move to Montana.
