Probably too long...
I did my walk/run for Juvenile (type 1) Diabetes today in support of my son and I. It was great! Loved my time with friends today who came out to support us and our cause. So much fun!
I was personally able to raise $1,311.00 to date. So amazing!!!
My team the Lancets and my son's team the Rusty Pancreas did so well.
Can't tell you how proud of my son and his friends I am. These young adults (17 & 18 years of age) raised money and came out to run with my son Brandon in support of him. Friends like that are to be treasured as they are few and far between. Not only that but they placed 1st...2nd...3r... AND 4th in the run to only name the top ones. WOW!!
We were blessed that the rain held off until we were safely on our way home. That was lucky! It looked to be about to happen throughout the run, thankfully not.
My DH made me proud today as well, this is the first time ever that he participated in an event of anything of this nature. He walked and FINISHED. Yeah! WTG!!
On another note most of you know we had lost our beloved Kirby dog awhile back. We have been having a tough time with losing him.
We recently adopted a new little Puppy. His name is 'Pip' as in Pipsqueak. He is a cutie of
Havanese descent and super friendly.
So many changes have begun; are occurring; and are to come.
My son is graduating high school, it was so exciting to see him cross the stage, and yet sad to see that the years pass by so quickly.
This same week he passed his Driver's exam and is now a responsible driver. . . Ok this I am going to worry regardless, even though his examiner at the registry told him he is a phenomenal driver. Wow! nope still worrying... a mother's prerogative.
We had a tour and orientation at the University he is going to be attending in September. It is in another city, within a day's drive (that's its saving grace for me) yesterday. It is a wonderful place; friendly and exciting. I felt like I would love to attend there myself. Saw the dorm apartment he will be staying in and all put some fears to ease.
So this will be another life change for me this fall. I think I may become a basket case from empty nest syndrome. OMG! I will have to actually 'TALK' to my DH! LOL!
Well by the time he leaves he will be an adult. He will be 18 and have to start learning to fend for himself. He is a conscientious and responsible young man, he will be fine.
Have you picked up that I will be psycho mom by fall? LOL!
On a hind note, I had an amazing holiday in Arizona with my Girlfriends last month. It was a Bootcamp week for us with a personal trainer whipping us into shape at 7:30 am 6/7days. We even walked most days afterwards, not to count shopping in the afternoons.
Had so much fun!
Well, I have to head out to a 50th BD party for my SIL, so I need to get ready.
Love you all my friends.
Walking for JDRF!
My Son and friends. He is the one in the Dark lenses.
