Teeth, Eyes and Bears...oh my!

We've had a pretty hectic week that won't end until after Mia's birthday party this coming Saturday.  Last week the kids visited the dentist and did great.  This is the first time EVER that Mia has done a check up with no tears, she's becoming such a big girl.  I was so proud of her.  AND she let them take one x-ray of her front teeth.  She has such a tiny mouth that taking a full set of x-rays would be difficult, but we are starting small and working our way towards that.  As she is losing her baby teeth, there is some concern with her adult teeth coming into her tiny mouth as there is not a lot of extra space.  Something will have to give and I'm not sure what that will look like, but at the moment, it is a wait and see. 

Calvin has a much bigger mouth and he got his first full set of x-rays done.  All 3 kids did great and no cavities, so that makes me a happy mama. 

Yesterday all 3 kids had a visit to the eye doctor, in addition to our bear friend Cubbie.  Calvin does Cubbies, the earliest Awana program and throughout the year, the kids get to take Cubbie home with them for a week.  Cubbie is supposed to do everything with them and then you take pictures and write a little note to share with the class when you return him.  Calvin has been enjoying Cubbie, but not super attached...rather Asher is very attached to Cubbie.  Of course, his favorite stuffed animals are bears, so it makes sense...those are his babies.  So, I hope there won't be too much trauma in returning Cubbie at the end of the week. 

Calvin and Asher both had super eye exams and their vision is great.  Which is great news.  We had stopped officially doing vision therapy for Mia's lazy left eye, and unfortunately, her eye isn't doing much work right now.  So, her vision in her left eye dropped a bit and we are now in the process of starting up vision therapy again to work on regaining that vision...it really is just a matter of her actively using her left eye.  And she's been choosing to not use it because it is weaker.  Her eye doctor thought that we could get back to where we are fairly quickly, but it was telling to me that we might be doing vision therapy indefinitely.  Which is ok. 

Homeschooling is going great.  I love it, the kids love it and we have flexibility to do these therapies that we need to get done, for us it's a win win. 

We are so excited that the weather is cooling down and the kids are looking forward to fun fall time activities.  We are grateful for each day we get with our little troop.
