    Wasn't able to watch the video yesterday while at work so just saw it. Awesome! I'll bet her dad is really proud of her.

    Finished up another year of dance school with a great performance. She loves to dance!

    Survived 4th grade from hell. On to 5th and our hopes are high! (new school).

    She's learning archery - and she's really good at it! Even has her own bow now. We practice in the backyard...shhh...don't tell the neighbors! ;)

    Has become an excellent swimmer due to swimming almost every day. And not having hardly any lows from it! So far at least - crossing fingers.

    And she's been sleeping in her own bed all night - so excited about this one! Ever since her seizure (almost 2 years ago) she's been afraid to sleep alone. I have been getting used to walking to her room a couple times a night to check, but it's worth it for her independence! :)

    Darryl - love this topic - and hope it is an inspiration to newly diagnosed families to know all the things their kids will do WITH diabetes.

    Get the game ball at T-ball by catching a high fly
    Get a second degree yellow belt in Kung Fu
    Attend circus camp!
    Go to kindergarten
    Have a best friend.
    Begin to read
    Learn to ride a big-kid bike
    Tell outlandish stories.
    Make people laugh.

    My D kid plays with a fife and drum corps that does marches and performances multiple times per week. Obviously she can't test in the middle of a march; she just brings small packs of raisins to eat if she gets low.

    In two years of marching as a D kid, she has had to eat ONE pack of raisins during a march because she felt low, and she normally ends up her marches at 120 or so. Talk about excellent planning on her part!

    And every Thursday night she swing dances for hours on end -- the best part of her week! And somehow she does it while maintaining amazing control of her BS.

    She will be going to Connecticut (500 miles away) with her F&D Corps for several days in August -- and I know she can do it while maintaining good control of her D. She's an amazing kids.

    Enjoy your little (and not-so-little) ones! :)

    Our first post

    My daughter celebrated her second birthday last week with a pool party and cake!
    She can recite her ABCs
    Can count to twenty in English & Spanish (thank you Dora!)
    Can sing Kermit's "Rainbow Connection"
    Can swim, run, ride her tricycle and quite frankly (no bias here), is smarter, kinder and more athletic than most two year olds we know.
    AND...she cleans her plate and doesn't bat an eye at finger sticks and shots...we are blessed (right now, at least ;)

    Well between my 2 boys with D (this would my my DH & my DS) they have rode over 100 miles on their bicycles in the past 3 weeks.

    Watch out Team Type 1.....here comes Aidan :D

    They also played 4 games of soccer at the beach....barefoot! This is the 1st year I let them do this, because pumps and sand have ALWAYS equalled disaster for us previously....so this was a big accomplishment for me too....

    Things CWD Can Do

    Go canoeing and hiking and mountain climbing and kayaking and manage their blood sugars appropriately (with a little help....).

    Get straight A's, play select fastpitch as a star pitcher and amazing 1 baseman, be the only 7th grader to start every varsity basketball game, be selected to play varsity volleyball even though she has never played before. And most importantly she is a really nice teenager!

    Wear my diabetes on my arm (literally,) get asked if I have diabetes a million times a day and get asked stupid questions about dabetes twice as much, and still never get frustrated or embarrased. I am who I am and nobody's opinion of me is going to change that.

    John can feel his lows now.
    He can put on his own site on his tummy without a three hour fight.
    He can go to his home school without them telling him he can't do this or that.
    Even though he missed alot of school last year because I didn't trust them when his BG's were all over he is at a level half a year ahead in math and reading.
    He is very athletic even though he isn't into any actual sports yet.

    That's so great! I bet that doing diabetes research will be very rewarding for him.

    Caro, you must be so proud of Jenny! She sings beautifully and I love her dancing ... I was a bit annoyed when the other dancers came out and blocked my view of her!;)
