This weekend was the first time that we attempted to complete an entire AHG badge in one weekend. It was a lot of work for C, but she seemed enthusiastic about most of it and it was a great chance to spend some extra time with her. One of the things she did for her “My Style” badge was to make some paper dolls and create a clothing line for them. She chose to feature some evening wear, so she spent several hours today working on her doll clothes. She was very pleased with the end result and I was happy to see her working so diligently on it.
Tim has had a sneaking suspicion about Big E for awhile now that I have kept trying to explain away. He kept insisting that perhaps Big E is red/green color blind. For the most part I thought perhaps he was just mixing up his words, but last night he picked up a little jar of red paint and started asking about the ‘green’ paint he was holding.
This evening we did some of basic color tests with Big E that I found on this site. Now, I’m not a doctor and I’m not going to flat out diagnose him, but I do think that perhaps he might have some problem seeing certain colors. He has to get a physical this summer to be ready for kindergarten so I will discuss it with his doctor at that point.
Color blindness runs in my family, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he is. And it isn’t at all upsetting, I just need to be a bit more patient when I’m working with colors with him. If he isn’t seeing what I’m seeing, I’ll need to take that into account. 🙂 I’ll keep you posted as we learn more!
