January: National Eye Care Month
I found out from Our Homeschool Home that January is National Eye Care Month. We went ahead and made eye doctor appointments, and it turns out that T is very near sighted and needs glasses. I had no idea of this while he was in public school, he always passed "their" eye screenings. Now that I have had him home with me I learn new things about him everyday. That in itself is one really great benefit to homeschooling. I have noticed him having to get close to see things, such as videos on the TV, or when I am reading aloud he has to walk across the room to come and see the pictures. So, I did see this coming, plus am also a glasses/contacts wearer. I had just procrastinated making the appointment, really for no reason at all. I saw this blog post and I called immediately. I am so glad I did. I will incorporate some of the lesson plans that she has linked to her blog from the National Eye Institute found here. I am so excited and can't wait for his new glasses to come in, in about a week. He will be amazed at what he is missing. I know I was.
