First Day (of school)

Scott Benner

The 504 meetings are finished and the D-supplies have been delivered to the nurse's office - summer with the kids is officially over. It makes me a little sad, I really do love spending time with them! 

Arden was so excited this morning that she yelled for me the instant that her alarm woke her. As I walked into her room I said, "what's wrong" and without taking a breath she blurted out (very fast), "some of my friends in my class are going to be like, oh my gosh you're in my class... that's so cool!" and then she smiled the biggest smile and asked me for a hug. Then she hopped out of bed and got dressed - I sure hope that this cheery morning vibe continues for a bit.. 

Funny aside: As I was writing this the school nurse called with Arden's pre-snack BGnow. She said in a quite normal and upbeat tone, "good morning! Arden's blood sugar is fifteen and the PDM wants her to have.... wait - she's not fifteen - obviously, or I'd be screaming... she is 130 and her snack is fifteen carbs". We laughed pretty hard... Oh diabetes humor, you are priceless.
