The Summer with the Pump

This summer was Amy's first with the pump and CGM.
What a difference compared to last year!
Last year we were on a schedule.....a strict schedule.
This year, we had time on our side.

Amy slept in many days until 8:30 or 9:00.
She didn't eat breakfast some days.
She didn't have lunch until 1pm other days.
and, we managed to push our suppers back to 5:00 and sometimes 6:00 this summer.

We went for ice cream.....and not at a scheduled snack time....rebels hey.
We went on holidays.  It took us 3 days to drive there and 3 days to drive back.
We went to an amusement park, a water slide park, and the beach while there.
We re-grassed our entire back yard.
We built a new deck with plans to add a pool next year.

We went off-roading in a sand pit in our side-by-side.
We went to the beach, and blueberry picking, to the play ground and bike riding.
We made cake pops and muffins and cookies.
We went to our cabin and enjoyed roasting marshmallows and making s'mores.

We did everything we wanted to do!

That would not have been as easy last year.

Yes, there have been some lows, and there have been numerous highs (driving all day long takes its toll!) but they have been relatively easy to predict and treat before getting out of hand.

I'm still tinkering with the pump settings now, as things wind down and autumn approaches.  We've seen some frost in the mornings already!  I also know that I will be tinkering some more as we get back into the school routine after Labor Day.

I hope everyone has had as many adventures and made as many great memories this summer as we have.
