A few weeks ago, they did a vision screening at school and William came home with a paper saying he had failed a portion of it and we needed to follow up with an eye doctor. I couldn't believe it! They had their vision checked last year in January and didn't have any issues and he certainly hadn't been complaining of not being able to see. That weekend, we happened to run into their eye doctor (who is also the dad of a classmate) at a restaurant and kind of mentioned it to him. If I am being honest, I was hoping for him to say, "oh, those tests are often wrong--he is probably fine". Instead, he said, you should probably bring him in. So, we made an appointment and headed in last week.
As we sat in the room and they started showing him rows of letters to say, which he clearly could not see or identify, he casually mentions, "yeah, this is exactly like it is at school when I can't see the board!" Apparently, he forgot to mention that to dear ol…
Weekend before last, Micah and I left the boys with his mom and headed out to Phoenix, AZ to visit some very dear friends. While I was trying to explain to a co-worker who we were going to see and why we were such great friends, I began to realize that we had been friends for close to 16 years--which takes us back to before they had any kiddos (now they have 4), before Micah and I were married or even dating, back to when we were still in college. We moved overseas together (and back again), lived an incredible amount of life together, experienced some really great highs along with some pretty devastating lows. We often say that our friendships on our team on the field somewhat ruined us for regular friendships because we know now how great and how precious close friendships can be. For a while we were lulled into thinking that type of friendship was the norm and easily accomplished. Hindsight, which you know, is 20/20. Looking back now, I know that we poured a lot of time and e…
Hello, this is Xavier. So sometime in June we went to the eye doctor for a checkup. Pretty much he told me I needed glasses. So we went to Thomas Eye Care and we were not even in there for five minutes (Mom told me) and I had picked out my glasses. On June 30, I got glasses! I did feel bad for our 6th grade small group leader because we told him bro was the one that had glasses.
Enough about glasses. So we walk 2 other dogs besides Barney. Jack & Zenie are Golden Retrievers who are not as wild as Barney.
So Shane and Joy were here at the end of May. We went to the Mercantile in Pawhuska and the food there is huge! We also played Catan & Cities and Knights of Catan.(bro won both!)
