October is National Down syndrome Awareness Month

It is is the First of October and that kicks off National Down syndrome Awareness Month

If you click on this link, you can see a post about Down syndrome awareness and visit a few featured blogs [Emma Sage's blog is included].

While we have been a bit laps in our posts of late, please be assured we are all healthy and has been very busy of late and there are some life issues [for Momma] that have been keeping me from uploading pictures of our days and sharing in our adventures.

But adventures we have been having.

Emma Sage made a road trip to Florida to take her big sister to college. Her Grammy could not believe how wonderful of a road traveler our little girl is.......she was a dream. Emma Sage did not complain once about the time spent strapped in the seat of the van [and having a dvd player playing her favorite movie 'Annie' didn't hurt the situation at all].

She loved the ocean and was getting brave towards the end of her day on the beach.

Emma Sage has been busy with First Grade [yes, can you believe I just typed 1st Grade]. I have so much to add to her homeschooling blog....and as soon as life settles back down for me, I will make sure we upload videos and pictures, as this little girl just LOVES to learn.

So, here is my vow...........for the month of October, I am going to make time in our day to post, post about life here on Maple Lane and what it means to be blessed with a little pixie who just happens to be sporting an extra chromosome on her 21st pair.

Help us Celebrate National Down syndrome Awareness some point during this month, have a conversation with someone you know about Down syndrome......and let's see where all the conversations lead!

Peace and love, Tara Marie
