The kids glasses came in and we headed to Costco today to get them.
Here's Emily's. You can't see the sides, but they are a pretty teal blue color with a little almost tiger stripe pattern. Very cute. She's amazed at how much better she sees. Her eyes are worse than mine, so I know they are helping her a lot.
Here's Ben. He put them on at first and said, "Whoa, these are blurry." But, that's the idea. It'll make that bad eye work more and hopefully, stop the drifting. He's already used to them in a matter of hours.
And then this afternoon was Jr. High registration. We had no clue what we were doing, but managed to figure everything out and get through the school in about an hour. Em found her locker and learned to open it. That took awhile. She's never done a lock like that. But, she got the hang of it quickly. Then, we walked to each of her classes and met with the PE coach about uniforms for PE (gray shirt and athletic shorts) and we chatted with a few friends and found where she'll pick up the bus at the end of the day. We squeezed a lot in an hour!
Emily is in all honors classes...She has Art, Honors Language Arts, HOnors Science, PE, Honors Social Studies, Lunch, Honors Math and iChoose (which is like a study hall). That's a heavy schedule, but I know she can hang. She may just need to play less Minecraft.
So, the plan is David will take Emily to school since he works about a mile from there. And I'll take the boys to school. Then, all the kids will take the bus home. That's new. But, the way they have it scheduled they are they are like the fifth stop for the bus and are at the corner by our house about 20 minutes after the bell rings to let school out. Seeing that Emily's school is 13 minutes away and the boys is 8 minutes, they aren't on the bus for very long. So, that will be nice for me! No more spending an hour everyday trying to pick up kids and fighting in the pick up line. Yippee!
School starts in 5 days! We're ready! Or at least I am. :)
