Throwback Thursday and some more...

This post was inspired by Christina (rugby) and misszippy (barefoot). Here I am, second from the left at the front, in my under 10 rugby team, 1973. Barefoot of course. I grew up barefoot and my son goes to school barefoot as well.



and some more...


This is what we have at work tomorrow...Barefoot Friday!!!

I love it!
I work from home so I get to be barefoot every day!

Why do schoolboys go barefoot?

Indi said...

Nice pic! I'd think Rugby barefooted would hurt like hell!!! I miss watching Rugby :(

The Green Girl said...

Wow, all this barefootedness - so crazy!

I love this picture.

racing dawn said...

So awesome! I'm sure the boys love it! :)

And my husband just went to the world 7's tourny (as a spectator...) - congrats to S. Africa!!!

Small Town Runner said...

Great photo! It's snowing here today, (2nd time this winter) so barefoot will only happen inside around these parts =D

Marlene said...

Going to school barefoot - I love that!

Jennifer said...

What a cool job thing to do! And to raise money too. I love the fact that your kid goes to school sans shoes, not something we ever see around here. For me I am barefoot all the time at home, but at work in the steel shop, not such a good idea!

Your son goes to school barefoot? I'm jealous!

tahoegirl said...

Love it. I go barefoot in the house all the time. Wish I could go barefoot to work.

Kate said...

Great picture!

No one would want to see my bare feet, and I'm thankful that these kids are wearing their shoes to school. My 16 year old, in fact, could clear a room with his feet! Of course, that's typically after practice, so I guess it wouldn't be as bad at school...

I want BareFoot Friday at my work, soooooo jealous

Giorgio said...

Nice picture!

Jill said...

I would be scared to go barefoot at my work - do you know where high school feet were washed last? Me either!

Heather said...

Great picture!! I love being barefoot, the first thing I do when I get home from work is take my shoes off. I'd love to have a barefoot day at work!!

Char said...

I can't believe that your son's ALLOWED to go to school barefoot.My boys had to wear shoes and hats and the appropriate school uniform or they would have been in big trouble.

Karen said...

How cool is that? I would have loved going to school barefoot as a kid. I might even love going to work barefoot too :)

Bethany + Ryan said...

Hi! Im so behind on reading blogs! LOVE the picture! It's so different to see kids playing Rugby. I didn't even know what Rugby was until college when Ryan played!

Christina said...

At work they are allowing barefeet? Too funny. I love your old pictures. I found one of me that I may post soon.

Meg said...

OK, that group picture just made my day!

Happy BF Friday to you! I'm abstaining, I have planter faciitis :! !

Her Name Is Rio said...

That is an adorable picture!

Ewa said...

Barefooting rocks!
Love the picture.

Lauren said...

Adorable picture! (Unfortunately i can't do barefoot, due to feet problems). But I recall years and years of barefoot.

Funny, I was just asking my husband about Rugby today, because I have a new student who has a full ride collage scholarship for rugby.

Again, love the picture.

Amy said...

That is so interesting! I never knew there were schools where all the kids go barefoot. Is there a reason behind it?
I notice the teachers did have shoes on, though...
Cute picture! And enjoy the freedom for your feet on Friday!

Laura said...

Love this!

Adam Culp (Crazy Floridian) said...

I love going barefoot, but cannot bring myself to run barefoot. South Florida is too hot, and there is simply too many nails and glass shards in the streets of this area.

HappyTrails said...

Sounds like a good way to build foot strength - barefoot rugby - wow!! Any photos of the foot decorating or did you pass on that? :-) Have a fantastic weekend of running Johann!

Sherri said...

I love the idea...and I think it is brilliant! Trying to find shoes every morning is tough...I would love to skip that step! =)

Amanda said...

I loved this post! Being barefoot is always awesome :)

Black Knight said...

Rugby, in my opinion the best sport in the world!
And now .... I am going to Edinburgh to follow Italy against Scotland (march. 19th).

Chris K said...

Johann, reading your Blog is like reading about another planet sometimes. Sooooooo different. That's why I like it! And you!

Molly said...

that is so funny. What are the odds??

I think it is good to see that there are some children who still know the freedom of going barefoot to school. I just wish people would not rush to judge the idea.
