Welcome to our adventures. I try as best as I can to document the happenings here in our family - everything from the shenanigans to the spiritual, from the kid to the kitchen, from the cat to the catastrophes. We believe that adventure can be found in everything we do...even in the mundane tasks of the day. When we set our minds on things above in gratitude to God, we find the strength to approach life with a sense of purpose & adventure. The adventure may not always be what we have planned...but isn't that what adventure is all about?

Other Stuff We Do

Abby had her first eye doctor appointment yesterday! Not that there was anything wrong...but, when you pay for eye insurance, it makes sense to actually take advantage of it don't you agree?

Fortunately, Abby has had plenty of opportunity to get to know the gang at Dr. Matsuoka's office. Since Abby has been accompanying us to our yearly exams since she was a newborn (we make it an event each year complete with dinner out after our appointments), she has become a favorite of the office staff, Miss Vicki & Miss Chaz. She is even allowed to go behind the receptionist desk and hang out there...of course she always brings a purse and cute flip flops and that sets the gals over the edge.

Our last visit to Dr. Matsuoka (March 07) we asked Abby if she'd like to make an appointment to come see the doctor. Her eyes lit up and she said, "YES!" So, we scheduled an appointment for 6/26. Upon pulling up in the parking lot and getting out of the car, I see Vicki & Chaz looking out the window waving at us. We headed in (Abby sporting her new lady bug purse and pink flip flops with iridescent sequins). Miss Chaz said that her and Vicki were talking all day about how they couldn't wait for Abby to come in...of course all this excitement had Abby looking forward to her time in the hot seat.


Abby had a great time doing all the tests - Dr. Matsuoka was very taken back at how smart Abby was. He was able to do more tests on her than the usual 4 year old because of her ability to recognize numbers and letters, as well as communicate and understand. He said that her vision is right where it is supposed to be (interestingly enough, children are naturally far sighted...as they grow, that corrects itself).

The real kicker is that she was very upset to hear that she would NOT be getting glasses. To the point of crying. Miss Vicki told Abby that she would go ahead and order some for her and she would call when they were "in". (She told me that she would take a pair of customer returns and replace them with plastic lenses...then give us a call). I wonder if Abby will wear them all the time....oh boy....well, we'll cross that bridge when it comes. For now, she's just telling everyone that she's getting glasses (and gives me a slight reprimand when I mention they are pretend).

HELLO ABBY,

I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN WITH YOU AT YOUR EYE APPOINTMENT. YOU ARE SUCH A FAVORITE WHEREVER YOU GO.

YOUR EYES ARE VERY GOOD WITHOUT HAVING TO WEAR GLASSES (EXCEPT MAYBE YOUR SUNGLASSES). THE EYEGLASSES THAT MS VICKI GETS FOR YOU WILL BE GLASSES THAT YOU CAN USE ANYTIME BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WEAR THEM WHEN YOU DON'T WANT TO BECAUSE YOUR EYES ARE VERY GOOD RIGHT NOW. (GET GLASSES WITH PINK AND PURPLE FRAMES!!!! AND A FAN ON THEM!!!! FOR WHEN IT GETS REALLY HOT!!!!)
I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!
GRANDADDY!
