I’ve baked apple cake with caramel sauce and pumpkin bread. We’ve run through some “crunchy” leaves on the ground at the park, and I saw Christmas lights being placed on store shelves, right next to the ghosts and goblins.
October is National Down syndrome Awareness Month.
Many blogs participate in the “31 for 21” Challenge (31 days in October, 21 for the extra copy of the 21st chromosome present in individuals with Down syndrome.) By flooding the blogosphere with posts, we hope that others will take notice and begin to see our beautiful children for the gifts they truly are. I’ve never participated before, but I do have a lot of things I’ve been meaning to write about – and this might be the motivation I need to get it done! But, instead of trying to post every day, I’m going to give myself a “21 for 21” Challenge – and try to post 21 times in October!
Ready?? I’m not sure I am….
