Trip to Adelaide.

On Tuesday we all went off to Adelaide to put Sam on the plane for summer camp at Campion college. He is still there and is enjoying it.

While we were there, I took Christopher to the Women's and Children's hospital for his pre pump appointment. I think the thought of having a pump is starting to overwhelm him a bit and he is getting frightened of it. I think going to the hospital really sunk the reality of getting it. He is definitely nervous and I did expect that but I know that the pump is the best way to treat his diabetes. He is less likely to have complications later in life if we keep his blood glucose in range now and we can do that much more easily with the pump.

Steve also took Tom, Amelia and Christopher to Dinosaurs alive while we were there. Here are a few photos that the children took.

Tomorrow it will be 10 days left till we start school for the 2011 year. I will be busy over the next few days getting the childrens program ready for the year.

This year Tom is in year 6, Amelia year 4 and Christopher in Reception. I am looking forward to a productive year.

Time to thinnk about school ALREADY? WOW! I've been enjoying Oprah Winfrey's show this week b/c she is in Australia where she took 300 of her audience. I have seen some of the most beautiful scenery ever and the spiritual history is amazing.

Blessings to you and yours,

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
