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: Catch-up: A new park

Our group of friends who have the “extra” cool genes like me met at the park a couple weeks ago.  But it was a different park than we usually go to, so I had all kinds of new things to look at. 

I think you all know by now that I just LOVE to swing.  And this park had swings!  Yay for swings!  So Daddy took me over and pushed me on the swings for a while.  I could just do that all day long!

I like to crawl all around, and Jack’s sister Madelyn crawled right around with me. 

We went on the slides too.  There was a bunch of slides.

And there was a thing that the bigger kids were climbing on, but I couldn’t do it yet.  So I just got inside and peeked out the window.

Here’s all of us, except for one tiny baby who had to go home earlier.  Look at all those boys with me!
