Hi everyone. Well i can't quite believe that summer is over. When'd that happen??..LOL It went by so very fast this year.

To think this time last year i was a stay at home mom!..LOL

Painting fun!!

Looky who got to do some creative painting with chocolate pudding!! I bet that was a fun day at school. I have to tell you, that i am really loving Jackson's new school this year. He has made so many accomplishments in just the few short months since September. And the big news?? We have Pretend play!!! I know that this may not seem like such a major milestone, but after playing only with toys over the last 8 years that involved pressing buttons (all cause and effect) we have actually seen Jackson making two of his fave Wiggles "talk" to each other!! This is such a big step!! It was just so amazing to see his imagination at work. I am well impressed!! This also means.....bumbumbum...you guessed it...new toys!!...LOL If we need to encourage this burst in his cognitive play.....we must go shopping!! (Like I need an excuse..lol) :o)

Work work work!! :o)

Well hi there everyone. I'm so sorry that i have let Jackson's blog go. I just recently started a new job after being a stay at home mom for 17 years!! I am working straight nights in a local hospital cafe...and while i enjoy the job, it is definitely taking it's toll as i adjust to this new routine.
Jackson is adjusting well, as i sleep while he is at school and wake up not long before his bus rolls up. He is really enjoying his new school this year so i think that helps. So many new changes. I was really worried with how he would take it all but have to admit that i am quite proud of my guy for adjusting so well. (probably better than me...LOL)
I am sure that once things settle, i will begin to write again..as i miss sharing pictures of my adventurous little guy getting up to everything that he does. :o)
Until then...please keep checking in..... :o)

First day of school!!

Hi everyone. I am sorry that i have neglected my blog for the last few weeks. I really don't know where the time has gone. With the last minute rush around before school started, to the madness run around after it started...LOL, to me now looking for work after being a stay at home mom for 17 years. Needless to say..it has been hectic.

Jackson started his new school last week and is settling in just nicely. He has already seen a speech disorder therapist and his O&M worker. I am very pleased!!

Jackson is in a class with 9 students altogether, one classroom teacher and 4 EA's. I like that he can have a bit more independence this year as he doesn't have his own EA, so while i know that there is always someone there when he needs someone, he can also have the chance to do a bit more on his own! I think that this will be great for Jackson and i am so excited to see the changes in him. :o)

I will try and be a little better with my posts as a routine sets in. Hope everyone had a smooth transition back into the school routine and I'll leave you with a couple of pics of my guy waiting for his first school bus of the year!!

Cheers!! :o)

T21 community in mourning.

I would like to light a candle today for two little ones that have both gone on to earn their angel wings this month. It has been an incredibly hard month in the Down syndrome community and we can only imagine the pain and sorrow that their families must be feeling. Our first little angel Eric, lost his fight and earned his wings on August 8th. He was son to Debbie and David,and brother of Zack, Madison, Isaac and Evan.

Our second little angel, Gabi lost her fight just last night, and has now gone on to earn her wings.

She was daughter to Micah and Jason and sister to Gracie.

Our thoughts and prayers are with both of these families during this incredibly difficult time.

We are so very sorry for your loss.

Please join me in lighting a candle to celebrate the lives of these two beautiful angels!!

"Anything YOU can do, I can do BETTER......I can Do anything Better than YOU!!"...LOL
These were taken the other day at the playground, and boy oh boy, was Jackson in a mood that day. He wanted to do every little thing that the other kids were doing. Nothing was going to stop him. These pictures kind of show that he wanted to do the same things as the older kids, and the smile shows that he KNOWS he did a great job!! Now if i could just figure out how to load videos on here...... LOL
