Our third child picked up her first pair of glasses today. She is in fourth grade and was living with a completely near-sighted left eye for who knows how long! We all picked up new glasses this week, too, except the youngest, of course.
The children's Christmas Vacation has been a very fulfilling experience of lego-building and other forms of creativity and expression. My oldest prepared supper tonight with a bit of help from Mom. We also had a bright, sunny day today with a high of about 8 degrees Fahrenheit. I truly enjoy Minnesota Winters for the sheer fact that the bitter cold weather brings with it plenty of sunshine. I would take that over 33 degrees and overcast plus fog like we had in Eastern Europe any day.
