Lisa, one of my DD's had a similar issue with her eyes and we did get her classes. She never used them as it seemed to be too big of a change for her to go back and forth. I would see how she does after school starts.

I'll have to wait until we get to Fire Island to ice...too much to do this morning. At least I can move around. Steps are still not fun.
Good luck with all the stinky BO girls. Nathaniel gets stinky feet but the rest of him is okay as long as he showers. I just got him Odor Eaters for his shoes.
Gah....puberty....DH always says, while Claire's throwing some kind of hissy fit, "Can we please just skip over puberty?" I remember needing deodorant before I got my period. I remember getting armpit hair at about 12. I started shaving my legs about the same time. My hair is so dark and I was so embarrassed about it. It wasn't like thick or anything, just really dark and noticeable.
I remember asking our nanny about it when I was little! She was in her early 20s, and somehow it seemed easier to go to her than to go to my Mom, although my Mom was the one who told me that those removal creams didn't really work. She used to make fun of the Nair commercial: Wipe Nair on. Wipe Nair off. Hair stays on!
Laurie, so sorry about the soreness! One thing I do that really helps is take baths with lots of Epsom salts added. I do that on nights when I do long and/or tough runs. I know some of my running friends swear by ice baths, but I'm too much of a wuss to do that. Although sitting in a nice cool pool helps, too.
I have boys... the older two started needing deodorant around 10 years old. Nathan will be 10 in August, and still doesn't really get BO. He sweats like crazy, but just has that wet puppy dog smell. Thomas is going to be 15 () in 16 days, and he's been shaving for a couple of years. Oh, and Matt (11...almost 12) has maybe three or four armpit hairs...lol.
I'm feeling very "meh" today. Chad left early this morning to fly out to San Diego. His best friend lives out there, so he goes out once a year. I had to get up early to take down a window display I had put up at our city municipal building. It was for the Fox Valley Marathon - my most favorite race. It starts and ends in my hometown, and I'm heading up a couple of committees for it. Plus I'll run the marathon with them this year. On the upside, Thomas gets home from Tennessee tomorrow. He's been there this week with a group from our church, working on homes.
Happy Friday everyone!
