Rufus is here! Yesterday, Emily and I went to a concert and dinner with Emily's grandparents. It was great. I had ribs and french fries! Then it was time to go home and get a great night sleep. What a great first day at Emily's house.

Rufus and I woke up and tested blood sugars. Rufus was 200 and I was 292! I did a correction and gave Rufus a shot. Rufus is very excited about staying in New Mexico. It is his first time! After a good breakfast of waffles, Rufus and I went to my sister Karen's (4) dance class. Rufus got to see some of Karen's friends! They thought Rufus was very neat. Then we went out to lunch to Subway. Rufus was 124! Then we came home and had some fun outside. Then we went to Girl Scouts Thinking Day andd I did a mouse play with my friends. Rufus enjoyed watching! Then we had a nice potluck dinner at my school! Rufus liked the food but when we tested him afterward, he was 292! I think he had too much excitement and a little bit too much sugar. Then he got a shot and he felt much better. It's been a full day with lots of excitement, but it was very fun, too. Good night and happy first whole day, Rufus!

Rufus has had a nice time visiting. He went to school with me on Thursday and everyone liked him. We love you, Rufus. We haved sewed on Rufus a New Mexico stamped silver button, to remind you of the three cultures here in the Land of Enchantment (Anglo, Hispanic, Native American). We loved having you!
