At Discovery, the school Tristen, Seth & Garrett attend, they have someone come in twice a year to test each student's hearing and vision (for free). Now, you may recall back in January 2010 Garrett was diagnosed as nearsighted and had to start wearing glasses; now it's Tristen's turn. Apparently the combination in mine and Brad's genes cause nearsightedness in our children! I find it odd because neither of us wear (or need) glasses. I suppose it is what it is and we'll deal with what life throws our way.
We allowed Garrett to choose his own style of glasses when he had to get them so we gave the same respect to Tristen, after all, they are the ones who have to wear them daily.
