52-39-6First week of school holidays completed and I managed to not overplan it and exhaust myself. I’m calling that a win.

October is Down syndrome awareness month and I am oh so excited to be sharing some beautiful stories, interesting information and so much love with you over the next month. I can’t wait for it all to begin on Wednesday. Watch this space.

52-39-1charlie: Charlie Love, you are king of the funny faces, the crazy stories, the uninhibited imagination. Between a creative workshop and a visit to Brisbane’s most interesting park (well, in our opinion anyway), you have loved letting your imagination run wild over the school holidays.

52-39-2nicholas: Having climbed up into the sand trough, you were mesmerised by the kids playing nearby. I carefully watched you in case you wanted to get down again, but of course as soon as I was distracted by another brother, you managed to do it all by yourself. Just like your medium sized brother, you happily entertain yourself and played for ages in the sand and water. Lucky Mum brought a change of clothes to the park. 

52-39-3sam: I wonder if it will ever get too hot for the jeans and long sleeved shirts that you seem to live in at the moment. I did giggle when, on suggesting you put on shorts the other day, you advised me that you needed to wear something “fancy” to the movies 😉 You have enjoyed playing with new friends and old this week, exploring new parks, seeing a movie, and even learning sign language at a sibling workshop. You don’t like sitting still for too long, but you have coped okay with some home time this week too.
