Also wanted to fill you in on another Bilby happening this week. We were in a large mall last Friday that was having health screenings - we walked by the vision booth and, providentially, decided to have the kids checked. The boys all seemed pretty good - but Chloe was NOT so fortunate. She had one VERY poor eye, according to them, so we got her in right away on Tuesday for an eye appointment. Sure enough - she has her mama's eyes (we are getting a chuckle out of this - our three sons have no eye problems - our adopted daughter has her mom's HORRIBLE eyes!!). Chloe got to help pick out her glasses and this is what she chose:Yes - you can't tell this from the picture - but they are PURPLE!!! She loves them and can't wait until later this week when they come in! She wore them all day with pride and her wonderful big brothers kept telling her how cute she looked in her new glasses. She was beaming!! We are so thankful we had her checked - she has astigmatisms in both eyes - and one is particularly bad. Our eye doctor said that we may have to do a patch a couple of hours a day so that her weak eye can be strengthened and not have "lazy eye" problems later. He is starting with a lesser prescription at this point as he felt she wasn't ready for the full strength yet - we are just so glad that we know and can have her checked regularly now. AND as Chloe said at supper last night, "I am just like you mommy - we BOTH have glasses!!"

Seeing Clearly Over Here
Ok - I survived - after almost 3 hrs - I was home and drooling all over myself as I IM' friends and family to let them know that I had, indeed, survived!! Now, at 10 pm - the novocaine is just starting to wear off - so, at this point, still not much pain. We shall see what tomorrow brings. Thanks for thinking of me and praying for me - I tried to be tough - however, I did beg the dentist to just let me go home and forget the whole thing - he didn't go for it!!!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
