It is official.....today 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 well.......life 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 Month..........at 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
