31 for 21 Challenge

October is National Down Syndrome Awareness month and every year, a group of bloggers take on the challenge of blogging every day for the entire month of October (31 days for Trisomy 21 - 3 copies of the 21st chromosome). While I have struggled lately with my blogging personally (lots of stress has felt like it's blocked my ability to write), I look forward to this challenge and for raising awareness for Down Syndrome. 

Some of the topics I plan to tackle over the next month:
  • Inclusion (this alone has a lot of sub topics)
  • Colin's 2nd year of Kindergarten
  • Due Process
  • Colin's difficulties with transitions
  • Colin's activities

  • Colin's current eye status (he has glasses!)
  • Feeding therapy
  • Colin's general progress in life

  • Life as a family of 5
  • Kailey and Cody

And whatever else may spur my writing. I'm not going to feel stressed about it but I do feel I have a lot to talk about so we will see what happens starting on Thursday!

Glad to have you join in on 31 for 21! I'm sure your experiences as of late will be invaluable for others to read about; you've got a lot of insight in to the school issues, inclusion, IEPs, and due process (unfortunately!) Don't stress about the challenge - it's just supposed to be a fun challenge and nothing will happen if you miss a day or two :)
