Question Grouping Question..

Hello all,

I have in the past tried to create some characters and when I try to move them... the eyeballs don't move with the character.


For example....I have been working on Mike's great shark tutorial and I added eyes to the model (nurbs sphere's) and when I move the rigging the shark moves but the eyes stay in one spot.


I have tried to open outliner and middle mouse drag BOTH eyes to the shark but still doesn't help....What in the world am I doing wrong.....??



Am I not grouping something correctly?




Thanks alot for your help in advance
