My husband called me this morning to remind me that the kids had an eye appointment. It's a good thing he did. I would not have remembered. It was quite the ordeal. Jason, Samantha and Tori all had appointments. Which is exhausting. I'm not sure if I prefer splitting them up, or not. If you split them up you are driving up to PCMC three times, but at least you are only fighting one kid at a time. The rest can be babysat.

Tori's vision is fine, her retinas are doing well. Samantha's retinas are doing fine, but she will be getting some progressive bifocals. That should be interesting. She has always had a hard time reading through her lenses. This wouldn't be a big deal except that she sticks her nose clear into the book to read them. We just spent another $500.00 to get her seeing. We must really like her. Jason is near sighted, but is still not too bad. Not that he'd wear the glasses if the doctor said he would need them. His retinas are also fine.

By the time we got done ordering Samantha's new glasses I was spent. Jason cried the whole appointment. Duncan and Tori fought or were overly silly. Samantha is always overly silly, or REALLY Momma needy. Today just wasn't my day.
This picture was taken by Duncan as he and Tori tried to wrestle with Jason out in the lobby while we got Samantha's glasses situated. The receptionist in the lobby asked Duncan if Jason wasn't feeling well. Duncan just smiled and said, "Nope, he's just Autistic."
For Family Night we went to the Bountiful Art Museum. The have a free Family Fun night once a month, so I thought we'd take advantage of it. My Mom and Dad came with us. We consider Mom an artist even if she doesn't.

Jason of course was his normal self. Thank goodness there really wasn't anything that Jason could get to, to destroy.
Tori and Sam really liked the paintings. It was kind of fun to see them look around.
There was a little project area, we didn't have much time to explore.
Duncan spent most of the time looking around with Grandpa. This was my favorite picture though. All the gold is embossed. Pretty cool huh?
Then they had a little art project. They showed the kids the picture "The Scream" by Edvard Munch and then told the kids to draw what made them scream.

Of course, Jason just jumped in and drew to his hearts content.
Samantha drew Monsters.
Tori drew a grave yard.
I'm not sure what Duncan drew. He drew a couple of different things and kept jumping up to show the teachers.
It was a fun and cheap Family Home Evening. The kids enjoyed themselves and even got some treats out of it.
