Pretty cute shirts, right? I especially like the baseball tee. The promotion ends at the end of October so if you want one, hustle on over to their site (here) to get your own.
And in preparation for our own campaign coming up next month I have to tell a little tidbit about Lucy’s signature red glasses. (Because we’re kind of focusing part of it around them).
She loves those things. But a while ago someone stepped on them and one of the “arms” broke off.
So she has been wearing her pink ones and longing for her red ones.
Finally Dave was able to track some new ones down for her for her birthday and she was in heaven about that.
So fast-forward to last week at Lake Powell.
It was late when we arrived at the marina.
But Lucy doesn’t have normal eyes. She can’t see at all even when it’s just a little dim outside.
As you can imagine, we were all kind of freaking out. She is a good swimmer and popped right up, and was pulled right out within seconds by our trusty driver. But man alive that got all our hearts pumping. What if she had hit her head on the way in? What if she had slipped under the marina? What if, what if, what if…all those horrifying things that go through a mother’s mind.
But thank Heavens that girl was just fine. (We said prayer after prayer of thanks for the next hour that she was ok.) But she was shaken up a bit and was bawling and cold and soaked through all her layers (it was a little chilly that night).
But her biggest worries?
1) That her new stuffed lion (Leo) she got at the BYU bookstore (who was soaked but clutched tight under her arm) would never get fluffy again.
and 2) that her new red glasses were gone. Lost forever in the depths of that deep dark water.
We told her over and over again that all that mattered was that she was ok, but I think she was a little on the over-tired side along with the freaked-out side.
We got her all situated and dried, Claire found her lost flipflop the next morning and Leo the Lion even dried out perfectly fluffy (and has since been lost at school…but that’s a story for another day!) On the way home I was filming Lucy telling about Lake Powell and she was laughing her head off about falling in the water so I think any emotional scars are healed.
But alas, those glasses are gone forever.
Hence the safety pin holding the old glasses together in these pictures 🙂
They don’t actually stay on her face very well, but hopefully they’ll make it through until we can find some new ones.
Bottom line on that somewhat-unrelated-story-that-I-just-want-to-remember is that glasses are awesome.
“Cool Glasses” are awesome.
And people who fight blindness are pretty awesome too.
Thanks Lemon Tee Shop and everyone else who helps fight to save vision.
