Welcome to Middle School Monday!
This may be an interesting school day - we have a bit of a field trip planned... to the eye doctor! It's time for Landon's check-up, so we can get him his new supply of contact lenses, and it's been a couple of years at least since Kennady's last check-up, and we fully expect that she'll be getting her first glasses as a result of today's appointment. In any case, I feel like a fair amount of money will leave our hands today, paying for the check-ups and Landon's contacts, plus probably a first pair of glasses.
The odds are stacked against her, as everyone else in our family needs some sort of corrective lenses!
When I last took Kennady for a vision check, everything was fine, but the eye doctor did ask her if she had any trouble seeing the board at school. Ummm... No, she didn't, because we homeschool. Oh! He said we would probably need to get her into glasses when she was a few years older. So now it's a few years down the road, and we are pretty sure it's time. Especially since she tried on my driving glasses awhile ago, just for fun, and discovered that she could see distances so much better! She sometimes borrows my glasses so she can see the powerpoint in church too. I suspect she's actually excited about getting glasses, since she loves trying on my glasses and her friends' glasses and taking selfies. I'm not excited about buying them. Oh well.

Goofy glasses - ummm....no.
Is it weird that she wants glasses? How about your kids - do they wear glasses? Do they get regular eye exams? Leave a comment and let me know! (Soon I have to get my kids to the dentist too. No one is excited about that. Ugh.)
