Wow, what a way to come home…  I was at a school meeting last night for Dev’s younger brother.  He just started 6th grade Band, so I had to go the the introduction meeting.  I left Dev and her brother home with dinner and a schedule.  Dad was still at the office, but hopefully home […]

Denver! Part one the Round Table

Posted by on July 30, 2013 at 2:56 pm

“WoW” is still where I am about the convention and it has been a week. We have never been to the National Down Syndrome Congress convention before.  We have chugged along in our own world and I think we have done pretty well.  Dev knows she has DS, but we don’t really ever talk about […]

That is the slogan on the Special Olympics Blog site.   What a great sentiment:  Unity, coming together as one, working for a common goal.  It seem so obvious, why is it so difficult?
