Today is Diabetes Art Day 2011.  We looked on line at the submissions – Benny loved all the art work made using diabetes supplies. I thought we'd be crazy-gluing infusion sets until midnight, but then he saw the Legos.

Ten minutes later (he insisted on being in the picture):

The artist describes his work: "A mega-awesome truck carrying my pump. One of the guys has diabetes. The truck is combined suitcase and car.  The trophy is because that's a really famous car 
and it's so fast that it can drive on water."

I thought we were all set but his sister wanted in on the action:

No explanation needed, she says. "Artist wishes to remain unknown."

More on Diabetes Art Day here.  There are dozens of wonderful submissions and some of them even have to do with type 1 diabetes! (But we had fun, right?)
