A Two Week Adventure

I know, I have missed two weeks of drawing, but I would like to report what a wonderful, crazy two weeks it has been! I have had the opportunity to Marshal and Wing Walk MD88 Aircraft into the new Eisenhower National Airport in Wichita! They are so much more massive and impressive when you’re standing under/in front of them as they approach!

I would also like to report that 97 campers have been safely returned to their parents after and amazing week at Camp Discovery! Camp Discovery is a residential camp for youth from 4th grade through 12th grade with diabetes. It is an amazing opportunity for them to experience camp in a safe environment where they are normal for 5 full days.

For me it is an eye-opener every year of how hard it is to live with diabetes, never a break, always thinking about what they are doing and how it is affecting them. Best description I have heard is that some people are built like an automatic car, they put it in drive and go, others are manuals and if you drive a manual everyday (like I do) you know you need to pay a lot of attention to the road, speed, RPMs, traffic, amount of fuel left. Unlike a car, however, you don’t get to park diabetes in the garage.

Anyway, camp was hugely successful and I am honored I got to share in a little of the fun.

Ranger Rick convinced me that these critters would go down easy – not so much, but they went down and stayed down!

P.S. I did start a drawing, not much done and not crazy about it, but still pencil on paper!
