Glasses-free Gus

It was a big week for our growing-up Gus. He got contacts. Ack!

He's worn glasses for 8 years - since he was 3 years old - so it's hard for us to imagine him without them. But we're getting used to it. And Gus loves the freedom of his new contacts.

Teaching him how to put them in is challenging, but he's getting better. My hope is, he'll be a pro at it by next month, when he has to get himself to the bus stop by 6:30 a.m. for middle school.

Now, I'm sure our next adventure will be braces. Doubtful Gus will be nearly as excited about those.

His eyelashes are so long, they would always touch the lenses of his glasses.
