What we’ve been up to
I just noticed I haven’t written anything since April! We’ve been too busy being sick, spending time with family and friends, and just generally having fun! But here’s an update:
Summer is finally here!!! I’m so excited to spend time with my boys (and to not have to go to school!!!) 😃
I haven’t started TJs 3rd grade school year yet. We are still doing work everyday to keep up the habit of school work and the mindset that it’s something we do almost every day.
Since that “summer school” work only takes about an hour, we have lots of time to play! We’ve taken a lot of walks on the foothills trail and found lots of beautiful flowers.
We’ve also joined our local YMCA for the boys to take swim lessons and sports (it’s also motivated me to start trying different workout classes).
TJs T1D still has its ups and downs, but there are days that I’m amazed at how it works out in my favor! The other day TJ was LOW all day! Lots of juice and extra snacks just barely kept him around 60-80.
Today I took the boys to the Y and let them play I an area I have to supervise them for a while, the whole time worrying about TJs numbers, (dex was reading ???-which does not help me know what his bg is doing. I checked his sugars and gave him a snack and dropped him off at childcare hoping that he wouldn’t crash and that dex would start cooperating. I started walking their indoor track while waiting for my class to start and periodically checked my phone to see if dex started working again. Shortly after I started my walk it stated working! Hallelujah!!! Praise God! Now I could keep an eye on his numbers while I worked out! I did have to run down and have him poke and eat some more fruit snacks before my kickboxing class started, but he was good the whole morning after that. 💜
We took the boys to see finding dory in the theater. That was lots of fun, and a really cute movie!!
We had fun with friends on the 4th! We let the boys stay up WAY later than normal–7pm bedtime normally. They were actually up when it was dark…during summer!!! And I baked my first ever pineapple upside down cake!
We started summer art class up again (thanks to a local homeschool mom friend)
TJs Matisse style art.
