31 for 21: A Busy Week

One of the best things about participating in the 31 for 21 blog hop is that you don't *have* to talk about Down syndrome, you can talk about anything.  You're just supposed to try to blog every day.

I've been talking about Down syndrome to people in real life all week long!  We're gearing up for our second annual Step Up for Down Syndrome walk, and I have been consumed by the details - Tshirt distribution, last minute vendor additions, layout for the walk pavilion, meetings with city officials.  I have a persistent uneasy feeling that I've forgotten something.

In the meantime, I also spoke to my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group about Down syndrome awareness month, and I spent today at a conference booth talking to medical professionals who do perinatal care.  The moms in MOPS were incredible - the last five years in that group have been some of my most challenging and rewarding as a mom.  It was a real privilege to present for them.

I keep telling people that it's a wonder that I can speak in complete sentences.  My brain is fried!

Evan, Corrie and Ben have been incredibly patient with me.  I have dragged them from one end of town to the other while I'm running errands and making phone calls, and I'll keep carting them around for the next week.  McDonalds and Chick Fil A are getting a lot of business from the Tomai family.

We did manage one family fun night last week.  Here we are:
