Happy Down syndrome awareness month! Thank you to EVERYONE who donated to Natalie''s buddy walk team! We reached our goal of $1,700 the morning of the walk! I feel honored to have you all support my girl. This is a tough year financially for so many people and we were blown away by the donations and support you all showed. THANK YOU!!!!!
The buddy walk was soooo much fun! The weather all week had been cold and rainy and we were so scared that we would have to miss out on our favorite annual event. Sunday morning we woke to blue skies and warmer (long sleeves and light coats) weather! YAY!!!! Natalie and Alyssa did pretty good considering we were there for 3 hours and all they did was run around. We saw sooooo many of our friends which is the best part of the whole event. All of Natalie''s grandparents were here which always means so much. We hope that she will always remember these walks as uplifting and full of family love. So far so good. :) The day ended (after many meltdowns by the girls) with the actual walk and Natalie getting her 4th medal. I am not really sure that it is possible that this is already our 4th buddy walk....*sniff* It was a great day and I am already looking forward to next year! Stat tuned for photos...of course. :)
