Buddy walk











We had our Down Syndrome Buddy walk on Saturday at the Montgomery zoo and had a blast. The girls were so good. Most of our team members showed up.. This year we had a sign made...and it was a huge hit with all 4 girls. Lily was our team captain, so her picture is alittle smaller on the banner(totally an after thought, because she doesnt understand why all her 3 sisters, close in age to her are on the banner and not her....they all have DS and she doesnt understand that part, because we make such a huge deal out of them all being the same, but a little different) so she became our team captain and had a few jobs to handle at the walk...like handing out our crown pins and making sure we all were accounted for and dresses straight before picture time...lol!
We had our online friends from our Reece's rainbow group also at the zoo. Shelley and her family joined our team and Amanda and her husband formed a team for their new son they hope to adopt Ean. I love this time of year...when we get to meet and see friends from all over the south east part of AL for our Buddy walk. We meet new friends each year. This year Sock Monkey Ministries was at our Buddy walk and gave every individual person there with DS a beautiful sock monkey. Our girls love theirs! Thanks so much Sock monkey ministries!!!!!
