homemade thank you's



Tonight I made these yummy oatmeal scotchies...the recipe was on the back of the bag of butterscotch bits. They are for the kids teachers and the ladies who work in the office at Ben and Madi's school. I owe the ladies in the office so much. With Madi having Type 1 Diabetes she is up at the office a few times a day. She has to have her blood sugar checked before and after PE, before lunch and anytime she feels she has low blood sugar. Madi is such a quiet little girl but these ladies know how to lovingly handle her. At home Steve calls Madi loudmouth but anywhere else she barley makes a peep. Last year on her birthday my dad was here visiting and we went to Logan's for Madi's birthday dinner. Well to surprise Madi, my dad told the waitress it was Madi's birthday. So all the people came over with cake and singing....Madi cried, buried herself in my dad, almost threw up and we have never been back to Logan's.

Both Ben and Madi are being awarded Student Of The Month for September. So they do get recognized at school and eat free pizza up on the stage with their parents. I can't believe they both ended up getting it the same month but their lunches overlap so I will be a proud mama up on the stage tomorrow with one on each side of me.

That is so cool they are BOTH getting recognized. I remember Madi in Wiesbaden as being quiet. I'm glad you are all doing great.

I will be praying for your dear Madi. My sweet Georgia (11) was diagnosed last Dec. with type 1, what a year it's been. I can totally relate to your grateful heart toward the office staff. Ours is awesome too. Love and prayers, Jodi
