Look who's got glasses!

A couple of weeks ago, Aubrey came home from school with a note from the nurse. She had failed her vision screening test:( So I took her to the eye doc a few days ago and she has 20/70 vision in her left eye 20/25 in her right. Poor kid. Shes been seeing a little blurry for a little while I guess-we had no idea! The doctor said that her right eye had been pulling a lot of the weight. She is actually seeing decently with both eyes, but when she is only using her left eye, she can barely read huge letters! So she is a bit near-sighted and the doctor said that she only has to wear her glasses at school. Its her choice to use them other times. One great thing about this experience is how excited Aubrey was about this. I wasn't sure what she would think, but she was waaaay excited when I told her she might need glasses(and Ella was like, "no fair!" Funny girls:) So, it was a really fun experience for her picking out her glasses! She couldn't wait to go to school wearing them today. She came home smiling telling me about all the nice things teachers and kids said(I was relieved-some kids are mean!)

Doesn't she look so old wearing them? It seems to have aged her a couple of years! Oh, and a funny thing she said when she first put them on was, "Everything looks more beautiful now!" So cute. I think she looks adorable in her new frames and I just love how she has embraced them!

Scholarly simply scholarly. I love her reaction to wearing glasses. I remember as a child as my dad was an optometrist and owned his own shop on Guam many moons ago I had every pair I ever wanted of course none of them were prescription. And now that we really need them hmmmm ahhh dad where are U? Anyway, great choice and it is so nice to actually be able to see and know that its a good thing. I love Ella's comments too cute.
