Congrats...

Here they call 'em Cub Cars...

We had our race yesterday as well. I am not sure how Seth did, as we didn't attend.

We inadvertently scheduled eye doctor appts. at the same time.

I believe they still raced his car, so we will find out Wednesday night.

On a side note - I have ordered contact lenses, am going to get rid of the glasses for a while. Any contact lens wearing dads out there??

I've worn contacts for the last 25 years or so. Still have a pair of glasses that I use as backup and in the evenings when I'm relaxing.

A life lesson and dad/son time is far more valuable than a trophy

Daily? Bi-Weekly? Monthly? or Other?

and why... ?

I used to waer them about 20 years ago... wore 'em for a couple years, but then my eyes got sensitive to them, and couldn't wear them anymore.

Well a lot has changed since then (with the technology of contacts). They pair I had back then, were the same pair for the entire 2 years.
Now they don't do that anymore, you change them (as mentioned above) daily, bi-weekly, or monthly. This way there is no bacteria build up (even after washing) or cracks or ears (rips not crying) in the lenses. I think that was the problem with mine back then, is they just wore out. But by the time I realized it, my eyes were starting to get to sensitive.

I am going to try them again with ones that get replaced somewhat frequently, and see if the results are any better.

As for putting them in and taking them out, it's not really as hard or uncomfortable as you would think.

I wear contacts. I've had them for about 4 years now. I have soft lenses that I change every 2 months. Not a big fan of that, but my insurance covers them and it costs me nothing. I asked about doing something different, but for the cost, I deal with the downsides of what I have. By about half way through month 2 on a pair, they tend to get dry out by the end of the day and get some scratches in them.

Also like someone else mentioned, I wear glasses if I'm just going to be hanging around the house.

It is kind of hard the first time you take them out. I poked at my eye for 45 minutes the first night I had them. I had a hard time getting one of them out. I swore it rolled up and was stuck behind my eye lid, but finally just gave up and went to bed. I found it on the bathroom floor the next day.

Both my dad and I were terrible at those father/son craft things. "So what if the wheels are oval. Better than square." The thing about it is that when I saw your post I had an instant flashback to fond memories. Your son will remember it for years to come.

Woo-hoo! Won by 15 and now back in 2nd place entering the playoffs. Looking at some of the other scores, it seems we are playing better than most entering the playoffs. First game Wednesday night vs. the 7 seed.

Congrats to the little ladies. Looks like your college scholarship prayers are on track.

Thank you for all of the prayers! Thank you to everyone who has ordered bracelets! Your generosity has been a great gift in this adventure.

It is quite shocking how thorough we will be vetted to adopt children. I wish my BIL had to go through the same process before he was allowed to breed

We will be chasing papers now for the next 6-8 weeks including getting finger printed. As an Italian American, I am not real comfortable walking into the FBI office here in Indy to get finge printed. They have been keeping us down since prohibition
Awesome news! Congratulations to you and your family and good luck throughout the process.

You both won. Spending time making the car together is the lesson and the reward.

So I tell them on day 1...DO NOT ASK FOR THE AWARD! The medal is earned, not given like a present! I think it teaches the kids to work for what they want and that they do truly appreciate it more when they get it.
Agreed. Looks like we all have similar views. As they learn to earn their accolades, they'll have a better idea of what it takes to succeed in all things.

Hey Brian. I have been wearing contact since I was 14. Started wearing the due to sports. Glasses were always getting broken or needing to be cleaned. Now I wear the daily ones. They are more expensive, but no cleaning or having to worry about losing one and the expense of replacing.

From my experience, they actually help you see better since your peripheral vision is improved. Good luck. Just make sure if you get the ones you clean that they are rinsed completely before you put them in.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Hi guys! Thank you for all the warm wishes and prayers

We started going through the stack of papers today.

On the contacts subject, I tried once and got the wrong one in one of my eyes. I thought I was going to lose it. Spent what seemed an eternity trying to get it out
