The Purpose of this Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide education and bring about higher awareness about Down syndrome. It is to share that life with Down syndrome (DS) is not scary, horrible, or to be feared.

My experience comes from raising my daughter, Nebraska Larae (Braska), born November 2006 with Down syndrome.
The posts on this blog are related in some way to life with DS or disability, and they are reposted here from my other family blogs. There are links to those blogs in the margin on the right side of this blog if you would like to visit them directly.

Thank you for coming by.

Braska: Buddies and braids

Last week on Monday, Daddy came home from work with a present for me! A coloring book and colors! We practiced coloring for a while before he had to go back for a special work meeting.

Since Daddy had a meeting, Mommy and I went to eat dinner with Jack and his family and some of his friends. It was fun! Jack thought there was alot of talking, I think.

I found a new thing I like alot... Mommy says it's called mashed taters and country gravy. I ate alot of bites of it!

Mommy did a new trick with my hair last week, too. She said it was french or something.

"What do you think?"

"Huh? Really? Gee, thanks!"

We went to see the guy that gave me my Steps. He was checking to see if they still fit ok. And they do, for a couple more months, he said. I waited for him like a big girl, but I kept looking to see if he was coming soon.

When Daddy got home that night, I told him and KiKi all about it.

On Thursday night, Grammy, Papa, Auntie Julia, and Uncle Ryan came by. I sat with Auntie Ju and watched some TV.
