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: 31 for 21: Signing with Jackson

Jack is my friend. You probably know that if you read my stories very much because we’re always playing together and he is in my class at school too.  I think he is pretty cool, and we always say hi and give fist bumps. (He calls it “pound it” but it’s ok with me.)

A few weeks ago, I was at Jack’s house so our mommies could make some fun shirts for us for the football games. (Mine is in this post if you want to see what we made.)

We played and climbed up the stairs (when mommies weren’t looking!!) and we even let KiKi play with us a little too.  Before we left to go home, we showed what we could do with our signing, the ones that both of us know. Here’s how it went…

Ok, Jack, you ready?
We’re gonna do some signing!
Hey, we’re gonna do a show, are you ready over there?

Let’s start with touchdown! No?
Ok, how about fish…
And hat…
Sign bird…
And cracker…
This is dog!
Sign baby… (we were very tired and ready for naps, can you tell?)
And now, we are All Done!
