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: Fun day at school!

Mommy told you that she took me to school yesterday. But I wanted to show you a few more things. It was so fun!! I wish I could take pictures of my class, but they don't like us to do that. That's sad, I think, but it's ok.

My teacher is Miss A, and she is really nice. We played with music and sang songs in the circle. I even had my own chair! I sat next to my new friend Z. She's a little bit older, but she's still 2. We went to the romper room, that's great big room where they have great big toys and lots of room to run and climb and play. Miss A told Mommy all about how I tried to get up on the big stuff, and how the teachers helped me walk on the balance beam since I was trying to do it.

We made pictures, and I brought mine home to show Belle. Miss A helped, but I did some of it too.

I told Mommy all about school on the way home. I just kept talking and laughing all the way in the car, but I don't think she always knew what I was saying. I was just so excited! I wanna go back again, but Mommy says I only get to go one time each week for now. When I turn 3, I'll get to go more. I can't wait!

I had my milk for lunch and then I was tired quick. School is fun but it wore me out!
