It's October Already??? You Know What That Means.. Down Syndrome Awareness Month Begins!
Okay,okay I've been MIA for months!!! Summer came and went and I seriously did not write one post. This old blog needs a dusting off! October is here, so time for some fall cleaning! I'll be posting as much as I possibly can to spread Down syndrome Awareness this month.
I guess today is as good a day as any to fill you in on what Miss E has been up to for the last three months.
After preschool graduation in June she basically just hung out with me all summer. She enjoyed her time in her little pool. And just running wild.
And we learned that Em is one hell of a strawberry picker! She can pick and eat her weight!
I, on the other hand lamented all summer over the looming dark cloud called Kindergarten. I had mounting anxiety. Mostly about the school. It was not my favorite.
ANYHOO... fast forward to present day and I will be the first to scream .. "I was wrong"!!!!!!!!!
She is having a blast , I love her teacher and her teachers aid is
AH MA ZING!
Emmie is taking her place as the bad girl in town by hitting all her friends ( we are making progress).
And she even as a special friend named Tony. When Em hears his name she freaking glows and gets all silly. I kid you not.
I met Tony this morning and I immediately understood my girls weak knees. He is adorable! Big brown eyes and lashes that hit his eyebrows. And that smile!!!! Simply irresistible!
So all is well with Kindergarten. Whew!
First day photo!
Keep checking back! If not for the writing abilities of the resident blogger, than for the sole reason of seeing some Emmie for the month of October! And maybe learning a bit about Down syndrome so you too can be an advocate!
