This time we took three children, two three-year-old girls and a seven-year-old boy. All of their mothers went with us, as well as Catherine Paola Krammer Davila, director of San Manuelito School in San Ramon. It’s a walk of several blocks. Last year, we carried some of the children because the baby strollers we gave the school several years ago had worn out. So, with the girls in brand new strollers and the boy in a wheelchair, we were on our way.
One little girl made the whole shoe store smile. As I held her arms, she moved her legs and tried to walk. Her whole body danced in excitement and I think perhaps she had a glimpse of the freedom awaiting her when she learns to walk. I’m betting that the next time we go, she’ll be walking.
