More Buddy Walk 2010

The first team kicking off the 2010 Buddy Walk around the canal.

Buddy Walk festivities up ahead
Lots to do and learn about under all the tents
Sophia, Mommy and Nana

Mommy, Jayden and Sophia petting the pony :)

What our wagon looked like for the first 5 minutes.....then Sophia started eating all the stars
and then she started working on the sign too and we ended up with a plain green wagon :(

I know that most of you have read this on our caring bridge site before, but I LOVE this and thought I would share it with you all again.

The Creed of Babies with Down Syndrome

My face may be different
but my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry
and I take pride in my gains
I was sent here among you
to teach you to love
As God in the heavens
looks down from above
To Him I am no different
His love knows no bounds
it's those here among you
in cities and towns
That judge me by standards
that man has imparted
but this family I've chosen
will help me get started
For I'm one of the children
so special and few
that came here to learn
the same lessons as you
That love is acceptance
it comes from the heart
we all have the same purpose
though not from the start
The Lord gave me life
to live and embrace
and I'll do as you do
but at my own pace
