Happy, happy Friday friends! Today is my favorite Friday of the year AND the husband is off work today, #winning. Tonight kicks off the annual H.A.M.B Drag Nationals. It is how we celebrate our anniversary and a weekend we count down to all year long. They say when you love someone you learn to love their interests.I suppose that is exactly what has happened with this weekend. I’m not sure who enjoys it more now days though. Now if we could just get rid of some of the rain that is in the forecast…
Let’s take a look at this weeks highlights.
Emily’s visit to Children’s Mercy
Earlier this week we took a trip to Kansas City to see a children’s ophthalmologist. We found out a lot of information and to be honest I feel like I am still processing the things he said. To make a long story short he felt the way she was currently being treated was garbage, prescribed new glasses, told us to do nothing other than let her wear the glasses and we go back in mid November to check her progress.
We kind of feel like we had an unexpected rug pulled out from underneath us. We knew his opinion would likely vary from the first one we received, but to be told the glasses she was wearing weren’t helping anything?! That was a tough pill to swallow. Especially seeing this has been going on for almost 6 months. He also was able to explain the ways Emily has been coping with her condition for so long to us. That girl is amazing.
So please keep praying. We are hoping to see 100% improvement and no more eye crossing with the new glasses. If we don’t, we are likely looking at surgery.
LegoLand Discovery Center
I had great plans to make an IKEA stop while we were in K.C. but I decided it would be more special for the girls to do something they love, like visit the LegoLand Discovery Center. PLUS we were less than 5 minutes away from it anyways. Those girls eat, sleep, and breathe all things Lego so they had the best time!
We also walked around Crown Center and ate lunch at Fritz’s. I was laughing with Russ because we never really spend any time in K.C. I’ve made a few IKEA runs, we went to the speedway, and the airport, but that has been the extent of us exploring K.C. together. I guess with more appointments for Emily in the future it seems like that might be changing soon. I better work on a things to do list, including meet up with Dara
The first time I took the girls roller skating they looked like arms and legs flailing around.
Oh how things have changed.
We recently bought our own skates and let’s just say their skating skills have MAJORLY improved with the extra practice. I love seeing them excited about and loving something new.
This week on the blog I shared about…
Have a great weekend!
