Here are a few pics of the kiddos that I took on Friday night before we headed off to Hunter's school Fall Carnival. I'm getting used to Ella's glasses, I think. She is still doing SO good with them. They mostly annoy me because I always see them as either crooked or slipping and it drives me crazy. But...... I'm getting used to them, maybe one day I will like them.
Anyhow, the carnival was fun pretty much just for Hunter. There were several bounce house type things and there was no way I was letting Ella in them, she would be trampled for sure, but she was pretty well behaved so it was good. I love watching Hunter interact with his friends, and it seems like everyone knows him. I kept cracking up, kids would come up and talk to him and they would exchange their "dudes" and "peace" seriously I don't think I have heard the word dude so much ever, and I would say "is that kid in your class?" and I always got, no that's so and so he's in 3rd grade I play wall ball with him at morning recess, no that's so and so he's in 5th grade I play wall ball with him at lunch recess. It was cracking me up. I asked him if any one else in the 1st grade played wall ball with them and he said "no mom. At first they wouldn't let me play because I'm only a first grader but then I showed them that I could so they let me cause I have the skills." Alright then.
I am a mother to two incredible children. Hunter is 8 years old and Ella Grace is 6 years old. My children are my life, my true joy. My life was turned upside down when my daughter was born and surprised us all by having Down syndrome. Since her birth I have come from sorrow and a sense of loss to greater happiness than I ever imagined and I owe it all to The Amazing Ella Grace!

My face may be different,but my feelings the same.I laugh and I cryand take pride in my gains.I was sent here among you to teach and to loveas God in the heavenslooks down from above.To Him I'm no different,His love knows no bounds;It's those here among you, in cities and townsthat judge me by standardsthat man has imparted,but this family I've choosenwill help me get started.For I'm one of the children,so special so few,that came here to learnthe same lessons as you.That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;we all have the same purpose,though not the same start.The Lord gave me lifeto live and embrace,and I'll do it as you do,but at my own pace.-Unknown
