The Donavon McNabb Diabetes Camp for Kids at Camp Green Lane in PA is one of the best times of all 365 days of the year!!..The feeling of being around others who live with the same disease, never fails to give me a sense of comfort, happiness, and normalcy. Its the 6 days that I get to talk freely about my diabetes, I don't have to explain myself, and we can all just relate to each other in how we are feeling. I also get to meet new people connect with them and stay in touch after camp! The friendships that are made at camp will never be forgotten!
(Here is a picture of the oldest girls cabin, SEASONS, aka TEAM AWESOME with McNabb!)
During these amazing 6 days, lots of stuff happened! There was the dance which was soooooooooo much fun! Here is another pic of the SEASONS cabin at the dance:
There was a FIRST for me at camp this year! That was.....a blood sugar all time low of 36 mg/dl. This was while i was having a catch with the football with my a kid named Jimmy. It was crazy. All of a sudden i was just like...WOW i need a break. cause i was starting to suck and not catch the ball and walk instead of run to the ball...lol Also while playing football was the first time someone has ever called me steroids..later to be shortened to roids...Basically i was beastin' it up during the game with some interceptions, touchdowns, and kick returns...but it was cool, my guy friends stood up for me and yelled at all the other guys who would call me different names like steroids or even Betsy, which was given to me cause this kid didn't know my name..lol
Here is the start of the PRANKS:::!
Since the girls were technically not allowed to go in the boy's cabins....WE decided to steal the boy's clothes off of their drying racks outside of their cabins and wear them to the flagpole the next morning!!! hahaha in front of the whole camp!..We also had a pair of their underwear the we stuck on a branch and marched out in front with!! lol They were pissed and came back at us with revenge in their eyes........That afternoon they decided to destroy our cabin, take ALL of our clothes, and throw them in a canoe in the lake. I thought this was funny but others, not so much..soooo we continued to battle it out and struck again the next night!
This time, considering they broke the rules by actually going into our cabin, we did the same. We snuck into their living area during the luau with string like a web and strung it throughout their whole cabin, had Vaseline on the door and light switches, put shaving cream on their windows and mirrors, placed forks strategically under their bed sheets, took their pillows out of their cases and hid them, and to top it all off we put pads and tampons on the beds and under the top bunks! hahahaha. It was awesome. Unfortunately we had to clean it all up, but it was funny while it lasted AND it got us in the boys cabin with them too! haha
Well considering i didnt get my pictures developed yet..i will have more about what we did at camp later..so thats it for now.
