The Knecht Family, Lancaster, Ohio
Welcome to Ohio, Rufus! Dylan and his family are so happy to see you! We took lots of photos (please make sure to look at them all!). Dylan is almost 6 years old. He has been diagnosed since he was 2 years old. We live in Lancaster, Ohio. Dylan loves to have pen-pals. Look us up on the childrenwithdiabetes.com website.
We took Rufus to see our uncle's pig farm in Jeffersonville, Ohio. Here are some pictures of Rufus, Dylan, and Dad.
We also took Rufus with us on a trip to the mall with sister Isabella, brother Nick, and Dylan.
Rufus visited the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio, and we took some great photos of Chihuly glass.
Then, the whole family left for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a family vacation. Here are some photos of Rufus with our family at the beach!
Grandma got Dylan is very own Rufus bear. Here is a photo of Dylan with both Rufus bears!
We will be so sad to see Rufus go, but he has helped bring awareness to diabetes. We took him with us every place we went, and told his story to anyone who would listen! Goodbye, Rufus, have fun!
