As it turns out Sydney needs glasses. Not as bad as her brother did, but she’s crossed over that line enough that we’re going to get her a pair soon. To get the ball rolling we went and tried on a few different frames to get some ideas.

Over two years ago I took the kids to the hobby shop (in part to revisit my own youth) and let each of them pick out a model to build. And finally, the first one was built. So I guess two more years before we do the next one. This one was just a snap […]

It’s been awhile, but we finally made our trip out to CA to see Dr. Michael Goldberg.

I’m SO lucky. Never in my life did I think I would have the opportunity to have the summer at home with the kids instead of working full-time. Yet due to the unexpected turn of events of the last 12 months fate has delivered just that to me. The short answer is that, due to […]
