Our 7 year old started school yesterday and today he comes home and tells us that they need to have brand new never worn shoes to use only for PE because we have a newer gym. We already bought him a new pair of school shoes and new clothes which I don't have an issue with. They can't use the old gym for PE though so we don't have to buy another pair of shoes JUST to be used for a 2nd graders PE class? We can afford the $20 to go out and buy a cheap pair of Walmart tennis shoes but it just seems rediculus. You know some of those parents can't even afford new school clothes when you see the grubby stuff they come in so how the heck are they suppose to afford a new pair of PE shoes?
K, rant over...
