Vision Screening

I'm back to doing this
For 56 Elementary Schools in Mesa.
K, 1st, 3rd & 5th graders
are tested in the MPS district.
The school Nurses screen the children we can't get to.
The Kindergarten and 1st Graders use a chart with pictures - but I couldn't find one to display. The older kids use the above letter chart. We also do near vision screening, and a color blindness test on the 3rd Graders.
The end of Vision Screening 101.
Happy Screening in 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

?Question on this next one?
Getting pulled off my treadmill by a trainer at Fitness Works to take her "Group Active" class.
It was a good class, but the people in there were a little over the hill - so should I be offended? JK, I was sore the next couple of days, sad!

Wichita Trip!

This blog is about our trip moving Graham and Jessica to Wichita, Kansas.
The following pictures will give you a better idea of the place where Graham and Jessica moved to.
How many states do you visit going from
Mesa to Wichita???

If you said "5" - you're absolutely right!
We saw field after field of
"Amber Waves of Grain"
thus the need for every town to have these huge
Grain Silo's

Do you remember when a tornado recently visited Kansas?
We went through the little town of Greensburg, KS
that that recent tornado wiped out.
The destruction was sad.

Graham and Jessica pulled all of their "stuff" in this.

Do you think in a couple of years they will be able to take ALL their "stuff" in this U-haul?

Their new home. (Apt)

Poolside View - Bottom Floor
A beautiful Green park across the street from their place.

I don't think you can see how green things are from my pictures.

Cooking their 1st Sunday Meal.

(chicken pillows)

The in-laws enjoying their 1st Sunday Dinner.

(lucky newlyweds?!?!)

Koch Arena

The arena where Graham will be playing


Graham gave us a tour through it. It was really nice inside.

Big flat screens on the walls w/black leather couches

where the players can play video games,

or just chill and watch TV.

If you look carefully, you can see a river,
aka the River Walk in downtown Wichita.

We had such a fun trip. It was fun getting to see where
the new "Hatch" couple will live for the next 3 years or so.
We're glad we could make the trip, and it was a trip!!!!!
We met a lot of nice, friendly people at their church.
I introduced myself in RS and after the meeting
a lady ran up to me and said that she had
recently moved to Wichita (she had been there a month).

She said that she and her husband were both from Mesa. She was a Stradling that graduated from MTV a year after me, and He was a Johnson who graduated from WHS in 1976.
She said she would take care of them for us. What a blessing!!
We felt like they are in good hands in Wichita.
Good Luck Hatch's!!!!!
