We couldn’t walk Mack to school this morning. As soon as I dropped Mack off, Cal, our carpool buddies, and I headed to Cal’s school for a Jaguar Family Breakfast. I packed my own Whole30 breakfast, but did snag an apple there.
Cal enjoyed the breakfast they served, however, and two cups of coffee (they were more like half-cups).
The kid loves coffee! I only rarely let him have it.
After everyone was served breakfast they had a trivia contest.
We didn’t do so great…
but Cal did get a spirit bracelet as a prize.
After I said goodbye to Cal and took my carpool partner home, I headed out on the bike towards the pool.
I did 1500 yards as 3X400 IM + 300 freestyle, then biked home (8 miles total on the bike). It was another gorgeous day.
Once home I made lunch.
(leftover salmon, beets, avocado, tomato, bell pepper, lettuce, spinach, vinaigrette)
After lunch I picked up both boys from school a little early for an ophthalmologist appointment.
I love the artwork at All Children’s Hospital.
I also love the awesome view of our postcard city from the sixth floor.
Cal has been complaining all year about his vision and both boys had less than perfect vision screenings at school this year. This appointment was overdue but was the soonest that they could be seen by the pediatric ophthalmologist that Cal saw a couple of years ago. His vision was normal at that time despite his complaining even then that he couldn’t see the clock and things like that.
Mack reverted to toddlerhood with this familiar toy:
Mack’s vision tested normal, but Cal’s was far from perfect.
I actually think he and I have the same prescription now. We were surprised that Cal needed glasses because neither his father nor I had glasses as children. I didn’t need glasses until I was 22 years old and Chad still doesn’t have prescription glasses although he does wear readers sometimes. The doctor said to blame it on a great uncle.
Off to the glasses store we went.
Cal REALLY wanted the Napoleon Dynamite frames…
but I refused.
Mack really wanted some glasses just for fun…
but again I said, “No.”
Here are the other rejects:
I liked the first two, but Cal settled on a similar but thicker pair. The third were definitely too big for his face and the fourth were just for fun (he said they were granny glasses).
He ended up getting these:
and since VisionWorks has BOGO, he also got this lighter pair:
I don’t think a kid has ever been happier or more grateful about getting glasses. He was thrilled and so happy that we were able to pick them up later the same day.
First I dropped the boys off at karate and went out to the storage unit to drop off the first round of Christmas boxes.
Then I went back to karate…
until Cal was done with his class and then he and I went to pick up his glasses. Chad was picking up Mack from karate, so Cal and I headed home to get dinner ready.
I made these Trader Joe’s (Whole30 compliant) chicken sausages.
That’s it for Day 22. Kicking Whole30 ass and feeling awesome.
