A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

School Begins!

As of Monday, Sydney and Isaac are both back in school. Sydney is loving second grade! Isaac is in preschool and is glad to be back in class with all of his friends. I am super pleased with their teachers and am glad to see them excited about the new year. We enjoyed our summer with its lazy days, but the fall brings routine and activities and new opportunities for the kids. I was a bit sad about not being able to go to the pool a lot during the summer or visit all of the parks we enjoy. The hot, hot weather was too much for Julia. (And we all actually prefer the humid summers in small doses.). To make up for the lack of usual summer activity, the kids were able to participate in several summer camps -- soccer, gymnastics, dance, girl scouts -- and a VBS. I think they really enjoyed all of them. Now school is in full swing and so are the fall activities. Isaac is playing soccer for the first time, and Sydney is adding another dance class and piano. The cooler weather is even here! We are discovering yet another new normal, and I am excited about it. I'm thankful that Julia will be part of it all.
