I’m leaving on a jet plane…

Off to Denver! I am going to visit my grandfather in Colorado this week.  My mom is up there right now visiting as well, so I thought I’d join her! I am looking forward to some cooler weather and visits with my cousins as well! If I can get online, I will try to do a little blogging!

I am going to miss my little furbabies so much.  I would take them if I could…

Vader wanted nothing to do with that bag…I think he knows what it means (momma’s leaving)!

Pool time with Blakeley!

My favorite picture of the day…She is just so cute! Those cheeks are so kissable!

Aunt Shuz and Blakeley trying to stay cool in the hot hot sun!

Crazy cycle stuff…

Okay, so I am on BCP’s and have just started the 2nd pack of active pills…I guess AF should technically be starting right now, but since I am continuing the BCP’s it is not.  However, I am spotting some yesterday and today…is that normal?

I called on Friday to make sure they wanted me to continue the active pills through July 7th (when I have a consult) and they said yes, so that we can stop them around then and begin a new medicated cycle.

I just hope my body is not going crazy and wants to begin a new cycle now…stay tuned!

Camp is dunzo!

What a week! I have to say Thursday and Friday were the hottest days of the week, but we survived! Here is what I gave my campers at the end of camp to remember all the happy times…

Day 2 of camp…

Today went much more smoothly than yesterday.  I can tell that right around 1:00 my little ones get very tired, thus I start seeing tears and are very short tempered.  So today I chose to stray away from our schedule a bit and have a down time around that time (we made up stories as a group, talked about pets and such)! At the end of the day, they said that that time was their favorite time!

Atta girl, Suzanne!!!!!!!!!!! I hope tomorrow is even better!

Hello mudder, hello fadder….

Day one of camp is over and I survived! I’ve got a great group of eight 4 year olds and only 2 are diabetic.  Like I said yesterday, the camp is fantastic, but there is a lot of waiting and with 4 years olds that is tough.  I was pulling all my teacher tricks out and singing songs and such, but that is entertaining for only so long.  Whew!

Here are a few from my group waiting to cool off in the pool…

After a long day of camp, we piled onto our respective buses and headed home for what we thought was an hour drive…WRONG.  2 and a half hours later we finally arrived at our destination and I headed home.  Needless to say, I’ve got a bit of a headache and am tired…goodnight!

Until tomorrow…

Gearing up for CAMP!!

Tomorrow morning I am off to camp…I am volunteering at Camp Bluebonnet, a camp for children with diabetes.  Although is is going to be so HOT, I think it will be fun! My group will consist of 3-5 year olds…I had the same group last year and was so amazed at how often they checked their levels without any fuss what so ever.  They taught me so much (basal/bolus, highs/lows, snacks to eat/not to eat, etc) and I am looking forward to learning much more from them this year!  Here are some pics from last year…

All the groups gather on the hill…
