Hi. I am Tom. Welcome to my blog.

Here are some facts about me.

I am 10 years old.
I love chocolate.
I do home school and it is fun.
I really love playing on computer.
I have type one diabetes.
My favourite AFL team is the Crows.

I will write on this blog about living with diabetes and what we do in home school.

I would love to get some comments so I know when people have been here.

Thanks from Tom.

Hi, Tom! Welcome to the world of blogging. I know your mother and I live in Indiana, USA. I have had experience with type one diabetes. I am a nurse, but most important I have a son, Wes, who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 9. He is now 37, married and has two lovely daughters. It is quite a journey.

God bless you, Tom. And I will be here to visit often. Cathy

Hi Tom! How nice that you are taking the time to write a blog. I have a 10 year old son and we homeschool too. What are you going to write about next?

God bless you Tom. All the best in your blog writing future. When I was 10, a rather long time ago, my favourite number was 10 and I played outfield on a baseball team that won a championship. I was proud to wear, you guessed it, #10.

I grew up with just two siblings and no Christian faith (though I've been a Christian since I was 19, a Protestant minister and much later a convert along with my family to the Catholic Church.)

From your Mom's blog I see you are one of eight kids in your family, a family that obviously loves our Lord and His Church. It will be interesting to read about how you live "with diabetes and what [you] do in home school."

Hi Tom! It is very cool that you write a blog. You have written more in your blog than I have in mine. My wife and I are going to homeschool this year, so I look forward to reading what you write here. Oh, by the way, I am a Type one diabetic also.

Hi Tom,

It seems that I am the only one without diabetes around here. I am feeling left out.

I also worry about your chioce of footy team. There is only one AFL team and that is the Mighty Cats! Cats eat crows...

I look forward to getting to know you on your blog.

Hi Tom! I am your Mom's friend, Therese from the USA. I am very interested to see what you will be writing about. My nephew is also Type 1. Good luck, and I am looking forward to reading your blog!

Tom, I'm happy to meet you. I hope you have a long blogging career.

I'm a friend of your Mom's from USA. My Father had type 1 diabetes, but I have not had any sign of it. I hope you will write about it so we can be more educated about it.

I want to know more about what you do in home school, too. Your blog project is a great idea.

Hi Tom. It's David Wright, down in Williamstown (SA) - we met once a few years ago when we visited your home. I remember playing on your Lord of the Rings computer game, which was awesome - we have one of our own now, but it's number 2. Happy to hear back from you! My Mum's blog is Stumblin' and Bumblin' Along (your Mum will have a link to it). Cheers ~ David W (12yo)

G'day Tom. Do you remember me ... James Wright? We visited your place once a few years ago and we played on that Battle for Middle Earth game which you have, and it was great. We have Batle for Middle Earth number 2 now which we think is just as good. I hope to see you again some time. Cheers ~ James W (10yo)

Hi Tom, I'm Leah, a friend of your mum's from Ireland. I'm glad to see that you have a new blog.

Kalona said...

Hi Tom! I'm your mum's friend Kalona (Sharon) from the DCF board and our blogs. I think it's great that you've started a blog and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I love hearing about your family and life in Australia. I live in Texas, USA. I'm a grandma and have 7 grandkids. I also have diabetes--type 2--diagnosed about 3 years ago. Looking forward to reading your blog for a long time!
