Doctors. 

October must be the month for doctors. Luke had his quarterly endo appointment at the beginning of the month. (Yeah for an A1c of 4.9%!) During fall break, we made up a dentist appointment I completely spaced the week before. (No cavities!) The dentist was impressed with Luke’s height and shoe size, but not so much… Continue reading Doctors.

Breakfast for the win!

It’s Fall Break and that means we actually make and eat breakfast together! While I was getting groceries this week, I found Kodiak Cakes.  Luke had two waffles with sugar free syrup  and a cup of Fairlife milk for 45g carbs and 25g protein! TWENTY-FIVE GRAMS OF PROTEIN! (And they’re tasty, too!) I think we… Continue reading Breakfast for the win!

Type 1 Tips: Keeping track of expiration dates.

It’s October… the best month of the year! As I turned the page in my planner this morning, I noticed this in the margin. Because we {thankfully} don’t use our glucagon kits on a regular basis, I don’t think to check expiration dates. Earlier this year, thanks to my friend Sara, I decided to put… Continue reading Type 1 Tips: Keeping track of expiration dates.

The story of three taco shells.

Taco night. One of the best nights ever. Easy to make, everyone can eat them (even Joel with his low carb tortillas), and everyone actually likes them. Our latest taco night was a little frazzled. Because Luke has Robotics Club on Thursdays, Joel and Luke didn’t get home from school until about 6:30 p.m. I… Continue reading The story of three taco shells.

JDRF Walk 2017.

It’s nearly here! Our 3rd JDRF One Walk! I’ve been a bit of a slacker this year in the fundraising department. I usually have three or four fundraisers and really try to raise money through our team page. However, life happened. We bought a house in April. Spent the next two months packing up fifteen… Continue reading JDRF Walk 2017.

Pumpkin zucchini muffins.

It’s so hard for me to get Luke to eat breakfast. Apparently, while his genes were sorting themselves out in the womb, he grabbed his grandma’s anti-breakfast gene. I’ve tried sweet (with protein, of course). I’ve tried eggs and bacon. I’ve tried easy, pop-in-the-microwave. And I’ve tried make-ahead-of-time-freeze-and-warm-up. Before diagnosis, although I didn’t like it,… Continue reading Pumpkin zucchini muffins.

Even if.

You may have heard the song “Even If” by Mercy Me. It’s a favorite of many and is often finding it’s way to me via the local radio airwaves. What you may not know is the story behind the song. Listen… “I know what [God’s] capable of… and even if He doesn’t come through, He’s… Continue reading Even if.
