I try to document our adventures as best I can, but not at the cost of being present in the moment with my family. Part of why I do this is because it helps to provide further context into our journey.  Yesterday, I had to get Gavin to Akron Children’s… Read more »

Gavin and I have been at Akron Children’s Hospital for two hours now. Not much has happened. Gavin had a basic eye exam and then some more specific testing as well.  We’ve spent more time waiting for someone to simply speak with us, then anything else.  My brain is still… Read more »

I wanted to let you all know how Gavin’s eye appointment went today. The reason he was going, aside from needing his glasses prescription stronger, is that he’s having vision problems that can’t be fixed with glasses.

Emmett kicked butt at his eye appointment today

Emmett and I just got back into town, picked up Gavin and will be getting Elliott from school in a few minutes. Emmett’s eye exam went great and he only needed a mild adjustment to his prescription. The doctor said his glasses will essentially remain unchanged. Something that’s a little… Read more »




We made it to Akron Children’s Hospital with a few minutes to spare 

Traffic was horrible today on the way to the hospital this morning. HORRIBLE.  That being said, we made it to his appointment with a few minutes to spare. 😀 Emmett’s being very brave, even though he’s really nervous about getting his eyes dilated.  He’s so sweet and the nurse is… Read more »
