Pumpkin Pie has been resistant to learn to tie her shoes. She probably has found it quite easy just to ask her brother and sister to do it for her. That said, she has recently joined Frontier Girls and one of the badges for her level is a Life Skills Award. This award requires that she learn to tie her shoes. Even so, she was quite hesitant. I grabbed the Usborne Tie-A-Bow Book off my shelf and showed her the illustrated shoes. After showing her a couple times how to tie, she has now mastered tying a bow! Congratulations Pumpkin Pie!
