Today was Kacey's 3rd grade awards ceremony. The Y3W presentation was done on a power point and it was AMAZING! Yep, I cried! Kacey also received several awards. The award that meant the most....A/B Honor Roll! She did it! She brought those grades back up to A's & B's. It's amazing what happens when diabetes actually bows down and takes the backseat! Her blood sugars have been absolutely amazing and she's felt so good! (Please don't let this jinx her) I really had no clue she'd made Honor Roll until her teacher called her name. I was just as shocked as Kacey was and immediately welled up with tears. For some, that doesn't mean anything....but for the parents of Type 1 kids...it means EVERYTHING! It means Kacey can manage her diabetes AND be an Honor Roll student but this also means we have some control over what her body is doing! (Thanks Herbie!)
We're down to the final countdown with Kayleigh. She's shed lots of tears in the last few days. Exams are kicking her butt this year and then she leaves on Friday. I can't believe the time is here! We're packing her suitcase tomorrow. The last day of school is Thursday and then she leaves for Hawaii on Friday morning. I've got all the legal paperwork done and notarized so she's all set to go! I'll be sharing pics as she emails them to me.
We're still really busy this week but next week we should have some time to relax. I'll be back to my normal posting routine. I'll catch up sooner or later ;)
