Buddy Walk 2009

The Buddy Walk was a big success this year :)  Here is our team photo, minus two families that didn't quite get there in time for the actual walk.  We had family, friends, and teachers join us...and we also teamed up with our friends from the group (that is Kaitlin riding with Chase in the wagon).

Chase sported angel wings on his shirt, and blood red lips from some free Rita's Italian Ice (Swedish fish flavor).  

It is weird.  I think the last couple years I have had little pangs of fear?  worry?  I don't know.  But this year I didn't feel that at all.  We were just there for Chase, and all his friends, celebrating him and all his potential.  Good stuff.

Also, we had the talk with Ian about Down syndrome beforehand.  He didn't really care that much.  He mostly wanted me to get him more crayons so he could finish the Halloween picture he was working on.
