Oh my goodness-we just remembered the funniest story and it has to go in the blog! I think Atticus was 3 or 4 at the time. We took the kids to our local bookstore for a magic show. They began by reading a children's book to all the kids there. They had the kids come up front and sit on the floor to listen to the story which was about nicknames. It was a story about all the different pet names parents call their children sweetie, honey, pumpkin etc. After they finished reading the book, they asked the kids if anyone wanted to share a special name their parents called them sometimes. Atticus hand shot straight up. They asked Atticus what special name do his parents sometimes call him...and he said "Sucka" in "sucker". Ahhhh. That was so funny.

Say a prayer for Atticus today 🙏. He doing a penicillin challenge today to see if he really is allergic or not. Hoping he's not. It's a painful procedure😢

This guy loved camp! We picked him up today! We missed him all week, but he didn't miss us! He even put a handkerchief over his face when we got there to try to hide from us. He said he loved camp and he wished it was 2 weeks long and he can't wait for next year. So many counselors told us how much they loved Atticus and how sweet and tender-hearted he was to all the campers. They said there were quite a few homesick kids in his cabin, and he took care of those kids and loved on them. We are so proud of him! He didn't shower all week-which was obvious, but he took care of himself, his diabetes, and other kids too. We didn't get to visit him or email him this week-unlike Max's week. Even though both of the boys' camps were at the Navigators's camp, Atticus was a diabetes camp. It was such a blessing to know that Atticus's counselors at diabetes camp were the same Christian counselors
Max had. Looks like we've got a new summer tradition for Atticus. He said he thinks he might even want to be a counselor there one day too. ❤️
Atticus said his counselor told him that he was his favorite camper out of the whole summer

Atticus is 17 days into his pump. It's been great and life-changing. We all wore a pump for 3 days to show our support for Atticus. We are loving pump life now!

He made it! A week at camp is over!! We were so happy to see Max! We missed him so much! He said he had a great week, but he's not sure he wants to do it again. We are so proud of him! We were 4th in line this morning behind the gate at 7:55am-ready to get Max at 8:30. The counselors announced the 10 nicest campers, and Max got 3rd. Yay! He also said his sister cabin voted him their favorite out of his cabin. We are so glad he is home. Tears of joy were shed by all😂. And we go right back on Sunday for Atticus's turn. Praying he has a great week!
