I'll try to get pics up tomorrow. Today has ended up busier than expected. So instead, an observation.
I didn't see one person with Down syndrome, other than my daughter, during 9 hours at the State Fair yesterday. I really don't intentionally play spot-the-bonus-chromosome when we're out, but I do usually have an "ok, there she/he is" moment. And I like it. It makes me feel good to see Kira's peeps out and about in the community.
I'm not going to lie, in the past when I would see teens/adults out with their parents, I'd assume that they were together because they lived together. That the parents were having to care for their adult child for all of their lives. But, I've decided to instead assume that the adult with Ds is visiting for the weekend, or home from college, or having to take care of their parents in their old age. I like it better that way.
So, anyway, not one T21 spotting! I couldn't believe it.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here's what I wrote in my first post: "Howdy - I'm hoping this will eventually be a blog about our family - life with two kids 21 months apart - Down syndrome - living simply - couponing - and whatever else comes up!" Yep. That's it so far!
