Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.
The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.

Buddy Walk 2007
Yesterday Maddie and I went to the Buddy Walk at the Bricktown Ballpark. Every year the National Down Syndrome Association puts on a Buddy Walk. It is a fundraiser to raise funds for local Down Syndrome children. They have all kinds of fun things for kids to do like inflatables, games, pony rides and much, much more. If any of you know anyone who has a DS child and they seems lost and don't know what to do or who can help, be sure to tell them about the National Down Syndrome Association. They would be able to help them find support of all kinds, it's a truly wonderful organization. I have a niece, Kylie who is 14 years old and she has Down Syndrome. Kylie is an absolute joy to our family. She loves music, cheerleading, her brother Kaleb, being with her mom and dad and Hannah Montana! She's a hoot, I tell ya! Maddie and I stopped at TCC before heading out to the ballpark. Every year we all have matching Buddy Walk t-shirts so Maddie and I put Bubba in his t-shirt and took a few pictures. Someday I'm going to be brave and take Fletcher with us to the Walk...maybe next year. Kayleigh didn't go with us this year because she wanted to spend the night with her cousins and Craig stayed behind to be with Fletcher and watch the OU game.
