Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2015

Whew, it was a long two week Christmas break. Having a child with Down syndrome and autism presents many challenges over the holidays.  So yes, I did the happy dance this  morning when the bus pulled up.  More on this after I wrap my mind around it.

This week I wanted to share a blog I wrote last year around this time.  I hope that it will inspire you @

Thank you for reading and sharing Nick’s world. And by the way, I did keep those bird feeders filled up. That’s what is in my noggin this week.

  1. Happy New Year to you and your family. Even though this was a repeat, it is still very appropriate. I especially liked the plaque quote from Ann Landers.
