So, about four weeks ago, while sitting in church, I realized that Samantha may need to visit the Optometrist when I saw her squinting to read the Hymn numbers on the wall.
I took her in the next day and sure enough, she got a prescription, albeit a mild one. She picked out some cute purple ROOTS frames and a couple days later they were ready.
She was a little bit nervous to wear them to school for the first time, as one of her friends had said that she thought glasses were "weird". I was so happy when she came home and reported that the same friend, after seeing Samantha's glasses, thought they were awesome and was hoping she could get glasses too.
