March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. It was also Goldie's due date and my grandmother's birthday. But, Goldie wanted her own day so she didn't wait until then.
Here she is, looking officially "2" in her shirt from The Rocking Pony. Doesn't Karen do great work? Now if I could get 6 more I wouldn't have to constantly answer the "how old is she" question.
I thought this would be a good day to show you all what I found in my first grader's science book.
Pretty cool, huh? There were also pictures of other children with special needs besides Down syndrome. It is the 2000 edition of the McGraw Hill first grade science book. I'd like to get my hands on a recent edition and see if they still include children of all abilities in their materials.
