I really can't complain about the cold - it's Michigan in winter, after all! I just wish I could get my garage door open - it's frozen shut!

Registered User Paige's Dad (KS) Dad of Paige, 8, Diagnosed October 10th, 2006, Pumping  (70.252.172.18) Tue Feb 06 08:53:17 PM EST 2007
I guess that means you don't need to go anywhere

Registered User Paige's Dad (KS) Dad of Paige, 8, Diagnosed October 10th, 2006, Pumping  (70.252.172.18) Tue Feb 06 08:53:51 PM EST 2007
I hope we're one of the lucky ones, Paige would love to go to Florida

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 08:53:51 PM EST 2007
Good - I'm glad you're applying for the ECWDF scholarship. They are good folks, and they support our families as much as they possibly can!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 08:55:10 PM EST 2007
It's good that you got your application in early.
Hmmm - the garage door is really more of a nuisance. I was too lazy to bring the car into the garage before it froze. So, now I just have to walk all the way around the house with anything I want to bring in the front door (including all those bags of groceries today)...

Registered User Paige's Dad (KS) Dad of Paige, 8, Diagnosed October 10th, 2006, Pumping  (70.252.172.18) Tue Feb 06 08:55:48 PM EST 2007
The economy is so bad around here, I know that that is the only way we would be able to attend, not telling Paige anything about it, don't want to get her hopes up

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 08:55:50 PM EST 2007
Ok - I see 8 other people in the room - who is hiding? Say hello! Grin

I like the hot humid Orlando weather even in the summer.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 09:05:30 PM EST 2007
I don't think there will be karaoke at the dance - I HAVE ordered it for the Tweener Social on Friday night... but Diamond is now a teen!

Registered User Rhon Diamond's Mama, 12, dx'd at 9  (24.88.238.80) Tue Feb 06 09:05:33 PM EST 2007

Hi Laura, and everyone....I guess my first timer question is the same, do we choose our sessions ahead of time....and do the kids? Or is it just organized by age for them?

Registered User Rhon Diamond's Mama, 12, dx'd at 9  (24.88.238.80) Tue Feb 06 09:06:04 PM EST 2007
Yea, she loved it at the Tweener Social, so she was hoping it'd be at the teen one too. She dug that dj.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 09:08:14 PM EST 2007
The kids sessions are pretty much picked for them. You just bring them to the room that is indicated on the schedule (or for pool time, you need to bring them to the pool). You do not sign up for sessions ahead of time. Simply go to what interests you - if it's not your cup of tea, pick up and go to a different session.

Registered User Karen H Mom of Joel, 10, dx'd at 7 and Casey, 7  (24.59.130.249) Tue Feb 06 09:08:24 PM EST 2007

Focus group info will be online in a few weeks. I know which companies are in which time slots, but I do not know their topics. When that info comes out, you will email me with who in your family wants to go to which focus group - and I need to ask everyone to stick with that (i.e., don't sign up and not show). There are limited places in each group, and someone will want your seat if you decide not to come. I put on my meanie hat for that!

Registered User Karen H Mom of Joel, 10, dx'd at 7 and Casey, 7  (24.59.130.249) Tue Feb 06 09:09:40 PM EST 2007

Yes, we are in the same section of the Coronado Convention Center. You can actually see which rooms if you go online to the schedule. We have all of Veracruz, Coronado A-J, all the Fiesta rooms, and a few more. it's a lot of space - more than half of the Convention Center.

Hey Chris, Hi Val (and anyone else I'm missing - sorry, trying to keep up!)
Disney tickets: For military families, you can get them through Shades of Green. For anyone else, you can get Convention tickets - great prices - from the link on the conference website. I can't link to the Disney ticket site from here - you need to go to the CWD site first.

Focus Groups do fill up - but this year, instead of 30 chairs per room, we can fit 50. And we're offering quite a few more focus groups, so that more people can participate. AND, sports central will be open all day on Weds so anyone who wants to play basketball or volleyball may do so - inside in the air conditioning!

I've asked Katie to be part of the sports panel, as we certainly do need more female athletes as role models for this segment of the conference... and Katie is a good one. She needs to balance that, though, with her responsibilities as Teen Staff. We need to talk!

Comedy is very hard to do about diabetes. Some falls flat, and some ends up being abrasive or insulting. I really try to avoid comedy (some comedians have sent me DVDs, and there wasn't a single one I thought was appropriate for our very mixed age group audience). There is plenty to do that is NOT sports. We just happen to be talking about sports.

Stacey - don't lose those mirrors! We actually talked about doing a make-up session this year and couldn't fit it in the teen schedule. Maybe it's something the tweener girls would like next year... or would that be pushing it? I think skin care is a good topic for 10-12 year olds.

Rhon: I will typically have to eat a lot in the first 2 hours to avoid lows, and increase basal near the end of rides, to avoid highs afterwards. With small adjustments, it stays perfect, and really makes off the bike management a breeze

Not sure if any have tried, but on Halloween, my mom would buy all of my candy. .10 cents for the small ones, and .25 cents for all chocolate. I typically made $25-30 on halloween, and was happy to give up the candy.

That's good Phil. We're having to do that with Diamond now. She bowls, which isn't too terribly athletic, but she goes super high everytime. So she checks in between each game (3 games total) now. It seems to help.

It's a good idea, Ellen... but i need to ask each company. One of the concerns that I would have is that we aren't crazy about pokey things on the exhibit floor. That's why all pump trials are done in hospitality suites or conference rooms. You need privacy for that sort of thing. And kids are often scared.

Sam's quilt square is #2. A friend made it for me because I don't have the first idea how to quilt. But Natalie Bellini's quilt square is #553.. and I made that for her for Christmas. Actually, i decorated that for her for Christmas. I did the hand-sewing, but not the quilting. It was harder than I thought it would be.

For Natalie's square, yes, I used iron-on transfers. And I wrecked up a whole bunch of them before i actually got it to work. I am not a good ironer... I didn't even know how my iron worked. My father-in-law had to show me at Thanksgiving. Sad but true.

Just avoid gluing things on the quilts as they may fall off over time.

The trick was ironing the photos onto another piece of light colored fabric first... and then turning under the edges and hand-sewing them on. If I'd tried to iron the photos transfers directly onto the quilt, I would have wrecked several squares.

HI Karen - We did scrapbooks for the first few years... but as you will see, there is so much to the conference, that really we needed the website to be able to represent it well. You are certainly welcome to scrapbook FFL this summer, and we'd be happy to display the book at future conferences.

Ellen, if there are, they need to speak up fast. All the tables are sold, and there are a total of 4 booths open! We do have a celiac discussion group this year. Crystal Jackson is going to lead it (her daughter has celiac and type 1).

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 09:54:42 PM EST 2007
Sorry that was confusing. You need to make and send your quilt squares well in advance of the conference. I think Jeff and Brenda need them by mid-June. The info on where to send, etc., is on the Quilt link I provided earlier.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 09:55:26 PM EST 2007
Good point, E. The elementary kids will be making some kind of arts-n-crafts memento this year; not sure it will be a whole scrapbook - that was kind of overwhelming for some of the kids!

Registered User JillA Mom of Ben, dx'd at 7 (6/06)  (12.240.37.50) Tue Feb 06 09:55:30 PM EST 2007

Meghan! Yea, that's her name. She was so nice to Diamond (being a 1st timer). She ate with us a few times too.

First-timers get to wear a special ribbon. Last year, they were pink. Not sure what color this year. (Oh, yes, Stacey - the shirts ARE purple)

1st timers had to wear pink tags. Bob teased Laura that he didn't like wearing pink. LOL it was just so the staff would know & be able to help you I guess.

Yep, she had 2 pumps, because I even mentioned that we thought Natalie was the only one.

Registered User JillA Mom of Ben, dx'd at 7 (6/06)  (12.240.37.50) Tue Feb 06 10:00:03 PM EST 2007
why two pumps?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.35.13) Tue Feb 06 10:00:22 PM EST 2007
I really liked the first timer tags- I think it was helpful in terms of the staff and old timer families being able to identify someone who was new and maybe not feeling quite 'at home' yet. We'll definitely do them again this summer. Maybe not pink, though. Rhon - I was proud of Bob - he wore his pink ribbon the whole time!

Registered User Anne mom of Gabriel, 10, dx'd 6/5/05  (64.31.149.162) Tue Feb 06 10:00:25 PM EST 2007
We were first timers last year and the ribbons were great - then when we were standing around looking lost and confused someone would know to help and point us in the right direction.

Goodnight everyone. Sorry, I missed some of this. I was watching the news to see if we are getting more snow--seems to be done for today.
