Have I mentioned before how much I love our local Type 1 community. We live in a fairly small town--about 50 thousand people--and there are only about 20 or 30 type 1 kids. This gives us a great opportunity to get to know them and for our diabetic educators to provide fun activities several times a year. Last night was the annual Type 1 Diabetes Halloween party for the kids. Sydney was a witch and Morgan was a giraffe. They were quite cute if I do say so myself! They had a great time. We love our educators and all the work they do to make our T1 kids feel special.
Also, a newspaper update. Since there are so few T1 kids in our area, I had a fairly good idea about which little boy they were talking about in that letter to the editor. Last night I confirmed who it was. 5 year old Gavin. Diagnosed 14 months ago. He is a very sweet little boy. We have had a few bbqs with his family. Good people. No letters to the editor have shown up in our paper yet but I check for them every morning and will keep you guys updated!
