    Awesome!

    In reality, it'll probably be tougher on you than him. We attended a JDRF event one time and the guest speaker was Chris Jarvis, Canadian Olympic Rower. He shared a story of how when he was a young teen his mom would be at his soccer games running up and down the sidelines holding a juice box and asking him if he felt low. :p;)

    OMGosh, this is how I felt last weekend. DS is playing travel baseball and they had 4 games back-to-back last Sunday...with about 15 minutes in between each game. Every inning I was "Are you okay/ Do you feel ok?" He finally told me, "Mom, I PROMISE I will tell you if I don't feel okay" and I know he will, so I stopped.

    Nothing can stop them if they really want to do it :)

    LOL! too cute - my son is only 5 so his soccer practice isn't exactly exhausting yet:) But I still feel super proud of him when he's out there toughing it out like all the other kids!

    Good for him. My newly diagnosed daughter has two hours of soccer tonight, one hour of skills clinic and one hour of regular practice. She also dances two nights a week. We won't let any of this diabetes stuff slow us down.:p
