The Hunsche Family, Cincinnati, Ohio

Rufus arrived today safe and sound. Kara was at school when he arrived and I arranged for him to be opened during her class. She was so excited. She got to tell her class all about Rufus and what he stands for; then the class all looked at where he has been. We went home and Kara would not put him down. He met all the neighbors.

Rufus went to Cincinnati Children's Hospital today. He got to see how the Neonatal Instensive Care Unit is, and he sure walked around and got introduced to a lot of people at the hospital. He was a hit in diabetes clinic. He again got to sleep with Kara; Philip is upset, he wants a turn, too.

Rufus got to go visit Phili's school. The preschoolers loved him. Philip was trying to tell them what Rufus was all about. I don't think they really got it. Philip was really the proud little brother today.

Rufus had a quiet day at home while Kara went to school. We then went to Nana's for dinner. Rufus got to meet all of Kara's cousins. It doesn't look like we will be able to set up the TV interview while Rufus is here. Scheduling conflicts or something.

Rufus and Kara are outside riding bikes. It is a little scary because there is no helmet for Rufus. I told Kara he could go for one quick ride but then the house rule goes into effect... No Helmet, No Bike.
