First of all, I can't believe it has been so long since I have written a post! I guess that is a good thing. We are living our lives with diabetes without letting diabetes run our lives.

We are spending a lot of time at the ball park. Both kids are enjoying it so much and Bubba and I are too.
Last Easter was our first holiday pumping. That was a huge relief for us. Most of our family holidays involve a whole lot of food and while Julia was on shots, it was a struggle to work that out. This year we have more experience on our side and am happy to report that not only was it a great day with family, Julia's numbers during our celebrations were between 72 - 131! Trust me I was shocked too. Those are great numbers and most of our "regular" days don't look anything like that.

Our spring break was full of fun as well. One of the things we got to do was meet Charlie Kimball and hear him speak about living and racing with diabetes. He is a driver on the IndyCar circuit and was so great. I promise to write a post soon just about that.
On a personal note, I am becoming more involved with our JDRF chapter. I am now a peer mentor to recently diagnosed families. I decided to help because after diagnosis, for our family, it was so great to have someone we could talk to who completely understood what we were going through.
So there you have it...we are doing well, just busy. Taking our Type 1 trip one day at a time. Luckily our trip lately has been pretty darn good.
