In Texas, boots are more than just a way to get where you’re going – they’re part of who you are.
“[Mom] never said she would buy me boots during my seventh birthday because I knew it was a surprise. When she gave me the last present, I opened it and saw it was a pair of boots. And I was super happy about that,” she says. “I just hugged my mama and told her that I really appreciated the good present she gave me.”
He says his boots are not brown – they’re maroon. There’s a difference.
Brock’s mom Adrienne says, “We have bought the same pair over and over again. After he grows out, we just find it again. The same brand. They’re brown and green. I think he likes them because he wants to look snazzy and he wants to be like his daddy.”
“I’m happy that I can run in them,” she says. “This year I’m going to be in first grade and I’m going to wear my cowgirl boots everywhere.”
