What's Next?

My Children with diabetes each graduated to new stages in their lives this week. 'Lanes will be in high school next year. That is a good thing. More impressive today was the dress she wore. She made it. She regularly surprises me with creativity. She draws and paints, loves anime and on her second attempt at sewing made this graduation dress. I went with her to buy the tule. She bought a spectacular amount of it but to good effect. This is the only full picture I have of her in it. It isn't the best picture but all the rest of my photos have classmates and lots of hugging. I noticed that any time a picture was being taken of one of them it rapidly become 3, 4, 6 or more. Her's is an outstanding class.

Connor graduated from high school six days ago, with honors he is very proud to say. So are we. He was also in every stage production the school put on in his 4 years, with the lead role in 7 of them. We're kinda proud of that too. He didn't make his tux, but it is his and he wears it well. He will be at Fordham University at Lincoln Center next fall studying theater and just found out he earned an arts scholarship from Diabetes Scholars.

All in all, it has been a great week.
