Survival of the First Week...

 We have pretty much successfully made it through our first week at a new school! There have been no real issues. There was one low the first day of school and one low today after school. Only one number over 300 after school one day and none at school. No one got made fun of, hurt, cried, or felt uncomfortable. The bus driver let them out at the wrong stop one day but turns out that was planned so they could run in the rain...not a good thing but pretty damn cute (the stops are literally a few feet apart). They are making friends easily and feeling like neighborhood kids. I have not seen this many smiles ever I don't think! Which makes me smile, inside and out.

Diabetes at school is going well. The only thing that was changed was the buddy system to the nurse. The teachers were sending Lily and her friend Austin (also type 1) together as buddies. Austin's mom and I thought this wasn't such a great idea in case both kids were low. Paranoid? Maybe. But they are only 7 years old.

So, I couldn't have asked for a better week for the first week of school! I think this move was a good thing...for everyone.

It's mommy time this weekend with a party at my house tomorrow night with the neighborhood mommies...we are putting a little more passion into our lives! Good time are going to be had!

  1. Glad everything is going well!

  2. Sounds wonderful. It is Back To School for Joe and Bridge next Wednesday...still have to do the education and push for care in the classroom. Great catch on not sending in the two type 1ers together. You are so right!

  3. Glad you are all surviving your first few new steps in your new home. You have a lot on your plate, it must be a good feeling to know your daughters are adjusting to their new surroundings. I always do better when I know my kids are settled. Great to find you on VoiceBoks. I look forward to reading more about your journey.
