WOW, I can not believe it, I have not posted to this blog since January?? SO, SORRY!
I think I have just been a bit busy!
We are very anxious to attend the upcoming National Down Syndrome Congress Convention this July in Florida. Yes...hot July Florida! The best part about it all is it is at Disney World! Our life is always about Down syndrome and at times my older 2 boys get lost in it. We want to make this a very special trip for everyone.
Hmm.....how are we going to get there?? Conference fee, travel expenses, Disney tickets???? FUNDRAISER! You betcha! I am not shy to do a fundraiser that is going to benefit all of us! We all need to learn more and more at the convention on how we can give Sam the best opportunities. I want my children to understand (I do think they are getting it) how important it is that we have to be Sam's advocate.
We are doing a Can/bottle drive fundraiser to help us get to Florida in July. During these hard economic times we would not ask anyone for direct funds....if you are not using your bottles/cans to cash in yourself or would like to donate them...we will take them!
