These are Eric's church shoes that he wore on his mission. As you can see, he put way too many miles on them. Melinda and I have been trying to get him to throw them away. The other day I was cleaning our apartment and I came across them. I put them in the trash after taking a picture of them so that Eric wouldn't have a hard time departing with them. I was taking out the trash when Eric was just returning from class. I asked him to throw it in the dumpster just to humor myself. He asked why I was laughing and I told him how I just got him to throw away his own shoes.
