What we've been up to?

Not much! We were on vacation last week and ended up hanging around the house and then going camping at the end of the week. Didn't even take one picture while we were camping! I do have some pictures of the Chicken Whisperer that I'll post when I find my camera amongst the camping shrapnel.

We have been on a eyeglass hunt. Gosh it's been a challenging event. We went to two local eyeglass shops/optometrists but since we already have the prescription it was like pulling teeth to get anyone to help us, beyond the fact that Asa had NO interest in the event and our insurance won't cover an optometrist but will the ophthalmologist. I am bent (literally) on metal frames, don't want anything to do with them and there is no where I can find the Centrostyle Glasses we really like. So, the lack of the selection locally I hit the Internet (cause that's what I do). I might regret the decision but I found a pair online I really liked and the measurements I was looking for based on the Centrostyle pair. Plus they're cool and I did not like any of the childish frames we saw at the shops. I know we'll need to have adjustments done and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. If all fails we can return them in 7 days I'm praying, picking up lucky pennies and crossing my fingers they work out!!! The Centrostyle pair also had cool clips for the arms to help hold the glasses in place and wouldn't you know Croakie makes the same thing! I found them on Amazon for $7.95. So hopefully we'll be sporting these and looking dapper as ever for kindy!

Swimming at Daycare
Asa had an ear infection last week. He has been swimming alot lately and doing great! The first day he went swimming with Daycare he jumped in like all the big kids did before my friend Jess was ready. The pool is about 5 feet deep and he went under with only arm floaties on. He came up eyes bulging but was fine. I think this is the culprit to the ear infection because on the way home that day he said his ears hurt and a couple days later there was drainage.... As long as he keeps his head above water we'll be fine!
