JDRF Family Camp

After our first soccer games we loaded up what felt like the entire kitchen and headed to Camp War Eagle for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Family Camp. It was really neat. We look forward to being really involved with them.We got to meet our new Endocrinologist. Here he is jumping off a telephone pole. :) He was very nice and he made an appointment with us just right there on the spot to see him the next Tuesday.
Emma and I got to do the ROPES course. Emma was a pro!!

Here she is going down the zip line. She loved it!!
We didn't actually spend the night like everyone else, but we did get a cabin. It was HOT, but it would have been really fun! With that many bunks, we could take the whole family! ;)

While we went to the evening seminar, the kids got to do some arts and crafts.

Everyone there is just like a big family. And most of them already knew us before we even got there as the "new ones with the 3 1/2 year old." But it was very reassuring to see so many (very active) kids and families who are the same as us. In the pool, we noticed a lot of pump sites with covers on them and all over moms were talking about their kids either being "high" or "low". Very familiar words and kind of weirdly comforting.
