A Trisomy 18 Journey

Fall Activities

With November nearly over, our lives will be settling from some of the kids' fall activities.  Isaac had his final soccer game of the season a few weeks ago.  This was his first team sport, and he loved it.  One of his friends from preschool was on his team, and they had a blast.  We had a lot of rain this fall and a few cancelled games, but the games he played in generally had perfect weather.  By that last game, though, the cold weather had arrived.  It was time to be done!  He was excited to get his first trophy.  As fun as it was for Isaac, I am glad to have our Monday nights and Saturday mornings free again...for now.

My oldest daughter performed in her first Nutcracker ballet this weekend after preparing for the last two months. There were four official performances. The shows were beautiful and the dancers on pointe were so impressive. Sydney had a small but sweet part as a snow angel, and she did a fantastic job! We had many talks about how important it is to be willing to do any part in a show and to give it your best. She did just that. I am very proud of her. Last week alone she spent more than 20 hours at rehearsals in addition to the four shows. I volunteered for a little less than half of that time, and I was worn out. Sydney had a lot of fun and now is very happy to be done!
