Silly faces to pass the time!

So here goes the story... Once upon a time... Just kidding...
So on Tuesday night I got back from Las Vegas and I was EXHAUSTED! so Mitch and I went to bed early. Brittany decided that she wanted to stay up late since it is spring break. About midnight Brittany heard Drayden go boom, he fell off his bed, So being the wonderful child that she is she went to check on him. She went to pick him up and felt that he was wet... she thought he went pee in his bed so she decided to go get mom and let me deal with it. As soon as she walked out into the hallway she looked at her hands and saw that they were all bloody!
"DAD, DRAYDEN FELL, AND HE IS BLEEDING ALL OVER!!"
Waking up from a dead sleep to that is just not a good thing. Mitch panicked a little. He was ready to run out the door in his underwear! I got a towel and wiped some of the blood away so we could see the extent of the injury. As we all know head wounds bleed alot, so the injury was not as bad as it seemed. I have no idea what he actually hit his head on to split it open. His bed is a little higher, but I didn't know it was capable of a cut like that. It was really gross, we could see his little skull, eeewww. He was a trooper at the ER though. The doctors were great and we were in and out in about 2 hours. 5 stitches and 3 loads of laundry later, he is back to his old self. He is excited about the cool scar he is going to get out of the deal. While I certainly could have thought up a better way to spend my night, I am glad that he is o.k. and I love him! after all Boys, certainly keep you on your toes now don't they!
When the kids come in we start the screening process. We take measurements of their eyes, and test for glaucoma.
I thought these little boys were adorable. They came to me after and showed me how smart they look in their new glasses. I just loved them!
The Driver of the Vision Van was Leona, this is her brother. He is a fantastic artist and he is helping to keep the children entertained by drawing their "cartoon" pictures.
Look at these wonderful kids. They have never had glasses before, and some of the perscriptions were really high. I am just so thrilled to have been a part of it.
SHOW YOUR MUSCLES!
Ben is the artist here, the kids just loved hanging with him! All of the volunteers were great. The kids were so excited to get their glasses so they could see better.
OneSight is a great organization. I plan on going on an actual "mission" with the organization. We dispense glasses all over the United States as well as all over the world. If you have any old sunglasses, Eyeglasses, Reading glasses... any kind of glasses I NEED THEM!! I have to collect 1000 pair to dispense on my mission.
