Blog #146~The Many Faces of Nick

I was cleaning out the camera roll on my iPhone the other day.  There are so many funny pictures of Nick.  My son is 22 years old, he has Down syndrome and autism.  This week, a light hearted piece, featuring the many faces of Nick.

I could never get Nick to wear hat and gloves on any frigid, winter day here in Chicago.  He’ll leave the house with them on.  But, flings them off before the yellow bus pulled away from the curb.  Yet, he willingly wears hats and gloves (on his own terms) around the house…….

I hope you enjoyed the many faces of Nick.  He’s quite a character.  I love this guy and his sense of humor.  Many thanks to his respite caregivers, Jodi and Kelsey for capturing several of these moments.  Have a great week, and take some time do something silly like Nick.  That’s what is in my noggin this week!
