An Little Update and a Little Look Forward

Wow!  How do I let three months pass without posting!

Here's an update:

1) school is out for the summer and the girls are at their Nanny's for the summer.  They are both completed swimming crash courses.  I'm hoping for them to pass Red Cross level 1 and 2.  I've never had them in lessons before because we have a very archaic system here and I wasn't going to stand in line for 8 hours to register them.

2) Next year brings a new school for grades 4-7.  I'm so worried about this.  One I think the age difference is too great for maturity.  Also, I contacted the principal about 3 weeks before school ended because I wanted to introduce myself and because I was hoping to learn the teacher's name for next year and set up meetings for the Fall.  after three attempts I finally received a response with less warmth than I had hoped.  Because of this, I sent the new NL guidelines for kids in school with diabetes.  Guess I might have to play hardball here.  In the end, he did offer to set up meetings with teachers on the admin day before school starts.

3) I have both girls registered for Valley Danceworks Inc for this fall.  This is an organization that offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Acro, Irish, Latin, Dub-step and others.  It also offers an after school program.  For $100 LESS per month than I was paying for 1 hr of childcare, we get the afterschool program AND access to all these classes.  I need to do up a package for the organizers, especially since this is a time of day that lows repeatedly show up.

4) We had the quarterly diabetes clinic in St. John's.  I'm happy to say everything is going good.  Her A1C actually dropped another 0.5 and is currently 6.9!!!! I was thrilled!  It's always nice to hear from the team that you are doing a great job!

I think that is everything for now.  We are headed out for our RV vacation in 4 weeks!
