Ryan was very excited to get his new glasses. He had taken to asking me every day when they were going to be ready. Generally Ryan’s glasses only last him one year, and not because he is not careful. On the contrary, he is quite careful with them, but he wears them constantly, unless he is in the shower or in bed. He just wears them right out. It also seems he gets hit in the face with balls rather frequently, because we find ourselves at the eye doctor’s office a fair amount more than we would like, in order to get the frames re-adjusted.
His last pair of glasses lasted him a record-breaking 3 years. That was partly due to his unexpectedly emotional adventure into contact lenses last year. It didn’t go very well at all, and now, with a sigh of relief, we are back to glasses.
This particular pair is a bit more trendy than he has had in the past. They are a funky color, too. They look green in a certain light, and blue in another. I figure they will take him into junior high in style. (Oh yes! He registered for jr. high this week!) He is thrilled with the glasses, thrilled with the junior high registration, and double-thrilled to have his befreckled mug blogged again!
