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 Retropost: Meeting Henry

A few weeks ago me and Jack went meet a new friend, Henry.  Well, he’s not so new, but I never had met him for real, just in our blogs.  Our friend Matthew was there, too. We played at Henry’s grandma’s house in the back yard. It’s SO pretty!
We had a pretty fun time.  But there was a little oops.  See that blue tub in that picture up there? I was standing up there holding on to it, Jack was standing next to it by that little bush plant.  I decided to give Jack a big hug, so I put both my arms on him, but he couldn’t hold me up. So we fell back onto that bush, then we flipped over our heads and down the hill.  We weren’t too happy about it, and we screamed pretty loud, but our mommies got there pretty quick and we were ok.  My mommy said she really wished she had it on a movie for us to watch over and over because it was kind of cute.

Later Jack did end up with a boo boo when he fell and bit his tongue.  It was icky and bloody!  But everyone’s ok, don’t worry.

Here’s three of the mommies.  Miss Ria had already left to go home.  Miss Julie is Jack’s mommy, Miss Heidi is Henry’s mommy, and there’s my mommy.

Miss Heidi and Henry went back home to Texas later, but we will be sure to get to see them the next time they come to visit!  Thanks for asking us to visit, Miss Heidi and making lunch!!
