October 27th Snow Storm
We had a huge snow storm on the 27th of Oct. so the kids didn’t have to go to school that day.
I asked Preston to wear his eye patch as he helped me shovel the snow for a little while until he gets bored and that usually doesn’t take that long, with that said within 10 minutes he asked me if he could take the sled up the street and slide down the little hill it is just up from our house and I could still keep an eye on him while shoveling the drive way and sidewalk.
Preston’s little friend Evan wanted to go sledding with him they went for a little while and the temperature started dropping more and I noticed their red little cheeks so I had them come in take off their wet clothes and drink some hot coco made with milk and marshmallows! They loved that of course! Now they were nice and toasty!
Preston has transitional lenses they will darken up outside in the sun, in the house they go back to normal. I noticed when he was coming in the house the one lens looked a little weird I thought that maybe it looked like that because it was cold, and could have gotten wet from the snow, but as I looked at again I noticed he was missing a lens. I said Preston your missing a lens! He started to laugh for moment and said oh mom how long will it take to get a new lens? He has another pair of glasses just in case of reasons like this, but he said they didn’t feel right! I told him fine he didn’t have to wear the other pair but he would have to go to school like that with a missing lens until we are able to get him a new one. It was a good thing that the lens that was missing was of his stronger eye!
Preston was worried that he would get made fun of at school I told him that kids might not even notice inside the class so don’t mention it and see what happens if they do just tell them what happened, but we know how kids can be! I told him it wouldn’t be that long before getting the new lens.
Preston’s friend Evan, his father and his sister came over and they all went outside and built an igloo in our front yard it was a great one! Took his mind off of losing his lens.
The next day at school only a couple of kids noticed his lens and didn’t tease him, I was able to get him a new one the next day!
