Getting a new pair of flip flops each year is a big deal tradition at the Chaos house. They allowed to pick any pair that their little hearts desire from the $1-$2 racks of flip flops. That is a big deal. Total control over the purchase of the official sponsor of summer foot wear.
This year we switched it up a little. I took the girls to a local craft store to pick out their flip flops since they were on sale. Then they each got to pick out a bolt of ribbon to decorate the flip flops with. They got to pick out flip flops AND ribbon. Their joy was full.
