Slam Dunk for Diabetes

I know I have already done a post about Cale's experience at the Moses E. Cheeks Slamdunk for Diabetes Camp. But, I just found this video that explains more about the camp.  There are a couple of "stars" in this video, also!  Cale's in it several times.  I made it in a couple of times.  And my sister even has a cameo (the tall blonde at the beginning, standing back from the registration table!!!)  Check it out...if you live nearby any of the locations, I highly recommend sending your child with Type 1!! (It's FREE!!!)

 Cale can't wait until June!!!!

We are back...

...and I now know that everyday real life is not fun!!!  While in Florida (an entirely different post will be done about our vacation), we had the normal "D" concerns.  I am convinced that if we had pool access all  year round, Cale would need very little insulin!!!  But, that was the only real concern!  We were able to relax, go with the flow and enjoy the sun (once it finally appeared). 

Today, it was back to sorting the mail into bills and garbage (same thing right?), getting the kids to school...fighting included (errrr!!!), dressing warm (I did wear flip feet are tan!), getting sucked into PTO drama as soon as I walked into the school and thinking about doing grocery shopping (I only thought about it, will actually do it tonight) and laundry.  Not fun things!

We did get to meet up with Lora and Justin at a cool video game spot near Tampa.  At first, both of the boys went in totally opposite directions to play their games while us "D" mamas chatted up a storm.  Once we decided it was dinner time, they had a blast together!!  Playing with ipods, talking military, shooting fake snakes out of peanut cans and asking for dessert (hmmmm....who did that - Justin?!)!!!  It was a great time!  I am so glad we were able to make our schedules work!!

And now a funny "D" moment.  One morning, we wandered down to breakfast at the hotel we were staying at near Busch Gardens in Tampa (that's a whole other gross story!) and as we were sitting and eating, we heard a "snap" sound.  My husband sarcastically laughs and says....someone just broke their plastic fork.  Cale and I said...nope, someone just closed a test strip bottle.  Sure enough, a lady sitting 2 tables away from us was testing her BG!!!!!  Our ears are trained!
