Busy Day and New Glasses… Again

We had a very busy day today. In the morning Cole and I went to the Naturopath for Allergy treatment, this was time consuming but not painful, Cole did say that it tickled. :)

We had a bit of downtime, then met Daddy at Karate to watch Cole test for his next belt. He already had 3 strips on his White belt so if he can show good focus and do the moves well he will move to the next level! We were pleased to see that he paid attention during the whole testing class, even when it wasn’t his turn. When it was his turn he did well, following instructions quickly and accurately. We are sooo proud of him!

After Karate we went to the optometrist for Cole’s eye exam. They had suggested that it would be a good idea to have his eyes checked before getting new glasses just in case the prescription had changed. I am full of respect for the optometrist, she spent a lot of time with Cole making sure she got the ‘real’ answer of what he could or couldn’t see with and without his glasses. Even though he was tired and just wanted to rest or play games with her, she kept him on track and determined his new prescription. I was pleased to see that one of his eyes had actually improved since his last exam.

After dinner at the mall we went to LensCrafters to order his new glasses. We had scoped them out earlier so they just had to pass the Daddy test before we ordered them. The glasses were approved and we ordered them and had them ‘pre-fitted’ so that I could come back later and pick them up while Cole was sleeping. We wanted him to be able to put them on as soon as he woke up in the morning. If they don’t fit quite right we can always go back in for a final adjustment.

First Pair of Broken Glasses

Cole has pretty good timing I guess. He waited until the last day of camping to try his biggest stunt on his bike, he decided to change gears. This is a HUGE stunt for him as his bike does not have gears. He had been watching the grownups ride around the campground and saw the chain moving up and down as we changed gears. He thought that if he put his foot into the chain that he would change gears and go faster. What actually happened is that he came to a sudden and complete stop, flew to the ground, snapped the arm off his glasses, suffered a serious gash to just below his eyebrow as his glasses dug into his face. We were grateful to have Polysporin and a good supply of bandaids on hand. Never go camping without a First Aid kit, accidents do happen! Luckily the cut wasn’t quite deep enough or long enough to need stitches so Daddy was able to patch him up and we could continue home as planned instead of packing up and heading to the nearest hospital.

Plans for tomorrow include a trip to the Optometrist to get his prescription and then off to get new glasses. Cole is thinking that glasses like Daddy’s might be nice this time instead of another pair of thick round black “Harry Potter” glasses.
