I have written about this amazing organization called CHAP (Children's Healing Art Project) before. Today, they hosted the first of hopefully many Diabetes Art Clubs. Basically this is a time for families dealing with Type 1 Diabetes to come together and just create. While the kids could use any of the many art supplies to make whatever their hearts could dream up, they also had some specific projects for the kids to work on. They decorated name tags, painted t-shirts, made collages, and made signs for the D art club. One project was to paint pictures of their favorite foods to be hung in a new restaurant in downtown Portland. Super cool! Oh, and guess who I got to meet?....
The best part of the event was meeting up with a wonderful Dmom blogger, Heidi. It was so cool to meet a family that I know through our blogs and Facebook. Like you would guess, she is super sweet! Looking forward to getting together more.
Now for some fun pictures of our time today at CHAP....

Jaden's artwork was of his favorite food: Watermelon
(I loved this so much I had him paint one for our kitchen)
Bryce painted his picture of spinach, broccoli, and carrots.
Drew loved the huge fort at CHAP... here he is peaking inside.
