Anna had an Ophthalmologist appointment today to get her eyes measured again before having surgery to correct her exotropia. Her last appointment took about three hours of mostly waiting, so this time I stayed at home with the twins, and Hubby took her to the Dr. Not knowing if they would have to dilate her eyes, I wanted her to get as much school done while in the waiting room, as possible. So I packed her backpack with everything she would need for school today, and was looking forward to a day off from teaching. It turned out that the wait was not as long this time, and all she got done before coming home was her math.
I have to admit I was slightly disappointed at losing my teacher break, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the picture Anna had drawn while I was getting lunch made. It's a pretty accurate drawing of an eye ball, with a very happy girl underneath. Apparently, the girl is "happy about her eyes". Anna then told me what they were going to do with her eye muscles when they operate on her eyes, and that her eye has six muscles. It was a nice reminder that you don't have to sit down with the books to learn something.
