Happy Saturday Night

Right now, all three boys are home and I can hear them upstairs, laughing about something that would probably take too long for them to explain to me for it to still be funny.  Something about computers, maybe a game, who really knows?  All that matters to me is the beautiful sound of their laughter, trickling down the stairs.  It’s something I don’t want to forget.

Happy Saturday night, to you and yours, wherever you are!

He’s the man

This is Avery, who loves to zipline.  If you told me this would be part of our life 15 years ago, I never would have believed it!

October is here!

And if you’ve got a person with Down syndrome in your family, you know that it’s Down Syndrome Awareness Month.  This is a terrific post about what it feels like for us, and there are more links in the comments to other families and their stories.  That’s what I love about this month:  it reminds us we’re not alone.

This is from ten years ago, at our first Buddy Walk.  Where did the time go?

 

 

 

Beautiful words

I love this post by Lisa Leonard, especially  this:

There is beauty in the dark places–where we least expect to find it. I have found on the hardest days, beauty shows up in real and miraculous ways”
