We attended our very first "Buddy Walk" today in Missoula, Mt. which is a two hour drive from our house. It was a very beautiful day and they had a great turnout.We met lots of parents and lots of very special kiddos and we were able to get some very useful information for working with our special children.It was a great way for Mom to get out of the house for some adult conversation(yes Gary is like talking to the kids most of the time) and to chat about D.S, one of her favorite subjects.All the kids had a great time visiting also and they are already talking about next years walk, we are very grateful that all of our kids support their little brother and sister with D.S. and how much they love them. I don't know who does more bragging Mom and Dad or the kids, but we are all very grateful they are part of our lives.We were also fortunate enough to meet another family associated with ReecesRainbow and what a small world this is.We were one of the last famalies to leave at the end and we will definitely be returning to walk next year.

I am so happy for you all. God has a plan for all of us. I am glad that his plan for you and Gary included all of your younger children (your older ones too ofcourse) all of the children are very lucky to have you and Gary as their parents. Though you thought you would be going back to EE, God had Jordon in mind for you and you followed God's plan. I am overjoyed for you and Jordon. I am happy that he and Bella have your home as theirs. Bella has come such a long way in such a short period of time and Jordon is absolutely adorable :O) Congrats also on Afton, what a cutie pie he is as well.
