Day 154

Well It has really been 365 days until Craig Diagnosis!! Not since Ive started this blog, but anyway, we have been dealing with Type 1 for a full year now!Its almost hard to believe.. but when we think of all that we have done and all that has happened in the past year, it almost feels like its been longer!!
Well Craig had a baseball tournament on the anniversary of his diagnosis, but I still wanted to make it special.. He has had a rough year and has  delt with it so amazingly.. He inspires me everyday!
So I had shirts made for our family, and bought blue laces for his team.. Craig had no idea.  When he saw our shirts he said they were "awesome"..but then when we arrived at the tournament and he saw all of the blue laces, he was really surprised.  I know he felt the love and support of his team and that made me so happy!
 Coach got a big card for Craig...

 All of the blue laces!!!
 This is how his brothers support him.They wear blue and play their ipods all the game! lol

 The whole family.. We had shirts made with "Someone with Type 1 Diabetes makes me proud everyday" and the back had his Jersey number and PRICE at the top.
 After the games, his coach presented him with the card signed by players, their families and the coaches. It was pretty awesome.  He said a few words about Craig and I completely teared up.. Craig also had cards for his coaches.. He wrote thank you card to many people who supported him this year. Teachers, leaders, Scout Leaders, Friends, Coaches, People who donated to the hospital.. I was thankful he took the time to thank those who have helped him the past year! I think that is very important!

 This one below is so funny... From a good friend of his.!! lol

As I saw all of those young men with blue laces, I though about how they will probably never know how much that meant to us... It was awesome to see all of the blue laces in support of our boy!
We are so very thankful for everyone who has been there for our kiddos this past year..Anyone who has offered kind words, a hug, donations, visits, and support in any way.  This year we could not have endured without you!! Thank you so much!!
