Glasses? and Physicals

Audrey, laundry, and I have the house to ourselves.  Kip and Miah are at first day of football practice.  

New cleats, new mouthpiece, new pads.  And hours and hours of practice and games to look forward to. ( :

Theres been a lot of preparation for football.  
I had to visit the birth certificate office again.  I think I lost his birth certificate during last years sign up. 
 I think.   Hopefully this time I can actually put the very important paper away...and not loose it. 

His sports physical was done.  And we are a little worried about it.  Kip called me after taking him to the doctor, 

"Jeremiah didn't pass his eye exam". 

"what!?!  he reads just fine!"

"he must be near sighted, he can't read any of the letters from far away on the eye chart"


So, now, I need to take him in to get his eyes checked. 

He thinks the possibility of wearing glasses is, in his words,  "I don't mind"

I'm just happy we know.  And if he does need glasses, need to get them asap

Sometimes, I forget how important it is for kids to get checked. 

I was sent some info to pass along to local readers.  And it seems to fit perfectly with us at the moment.

How cool that his response was "I don't mind." He seems like such a great kid...laid-back and a thinker.

I had to start wearing glasses in first grade. I didn't mind then, but when they got to the thickness of coke bottles, I started to mind. Thank goodness for contacts.
