Cool way to tie shoes! Easy for kids!

WOW! So it's been well over a year since my last blog post.  I wasn't really sure if I was going to do any more blogging because things have just been so hectic.  But, I realized yesterday how much I missed it, and last night I got the inspiration I needed to start up again.  :)

So, I was looking through my News Feed on FaceBook when I came upon this video of someone showing how to tie shoelaces in a totally different way than I'd ever seen before.  And I thougth, AWESOME! My  newly 7 year old was taught the bunny ear method some months ago, and it was a good method... but it still took a good amount of time and practice before I could have him do it on his own and trust him to walk in those shoes.  After I saw this new method last night, I showed my newly 5 year old and he picked it up after the first try!  I have to remind him which steps come next, and after I made him do it three times out of excitement (mine), he lost his enthusiasm and needed more help, but seriously...  It was just amazing.  So, I tried to share the video, but it didn't post.

This morning I figured I'd try sharing it again, so scrolled through FB and could not find it.  Super frustrating.  And then I spent more time than I should have sifting through a bunch of how to videos on YouTube trying to find something similar.  No luck.  Finally, I thought, why not?  I'm just gonna make one myself!  Thus, my first ever homemade YouTube video!

Here it is:

So, take a look, let me know what you think, leave a comment, and if you like it please share it and like it on YouTube if you're able.  :)

Check back soon, more to come!  (I promise!)
