Rufus arrived in Boulder, Colorado today; right after that, me and my patrol named our group named it (the patrol) "the Teddies"! After we finished, we watched the hockey game; the Avs lost 2-1. By the end of the game, that was very bloody! Rufus went to sleep, but I stood up and watched The Games (it's a t.v. show). I then changed my pump site and Rufus' and it sort of hurt him, and then it was time to go to bed!

Tomorrow I am going to let Rufus wear a GlucoWatch. I have two of them so I can share. Today we pretended at school to be in a WWI wax museum. Rufus sleeps in my bunk bed.

Today, at school everyone turned in their reports. At the end of the day, we had a party where you dress up like a famous person. We had lots of pizza and pop and cake cause it was my teacher's birthday. Then we did home work and went to bed forgetting to put a glucowatch on!
My mom and dad went to the Broadmoor and left us with my aunt and uncle.

On Saturday, we played with Rufus and my cousins, and after lunch Rufus and I went to bed; when we woke up, it was 5:07 - almost time for my hockey game, but we lost 5-3, and I scored a goal!

At our diabetes Potluck, Rufus wore a GlucoWatch. We ate, played air hockey, and we all had a good time!
