Sydney is a senior this year and can't wait for school to start and the walk to come. She keeps asking me if I'm going to cry since she's a senior. "Yes, every day Syd" I said. I will say its' hard to cry when she has a smile on her face and really loves everything about life! I could really learn a lot from her if I would take the time to slow down and just enjoy everything, big and small! To say this year will be filled with tears is an understatement. Happy tears, sad tears, excited tears, proud tears, scared tears, "not sure what I'm feeling" tears-I'm sure it will be all of those!
It would mean everythign to her and our family if you can join us for the walk on September 24th. The Hawkeye Area Down Syndrome Association's 2017 Step Up for Down Syndrome will be changing locations this year and will be at the Sag Wagon and the Cedar Lake Loop Trail in Cedar Rapids. New this year is a chip timed 5k kicking off at 9am! Our team will be doing the walk but feel free to sign up for the 5K too! Our goal is to have the biggest team yet so please consider joining us!
