I just came across this website, T-21 Club and I want to buy everything off of it! I've been wanting something different to get certain family members and I think I found it!

I don't think I have much else to update on. I'm going to be busy helping to plan the CDSC's Buddy Walk on September 30. Pat and I joined the committee and are doing what we can to help. It's only the CDSC's second walk, but we're expecting around 400 people. It's been nice helping to plan something as important to DS awareness as the Buddy Walk. I'm looking forward to get more involved as time goes on. It's hard right now with Joey only being 4 1/2 months old, but once things get more settled down, it'll be easier (I hope).

I've been thinking about before Joey was born, how boring our lives were and how lonely I was. We got married and I moved up here to Connecticut with Patrick and knew no one besides Pat's family. I still don't know many people, but having Joey has actully helped me to make friends... if he didn't have T-21, I wouldn't be meeting the wonderful families that I have, not to mention all of you other Moms that I've met on here.

Back to the Buddy Walk, I've been trying to come up with ideas for our Team Name. I don't want to do "Team Joey", there's going to be other Joeys there so I need something different. Does anyone have any ideas?

That's great that you guys are getting involved like that for your first Buddy Walk!

We went to our first one when Kayla was only 3 months old.

I would love to be involved in the committee to the BW we attend, but it's in El Paso, TX and 1.5 hrs away!

I'll try to think of some names for you - I had the same trouble last year - came up with Kayla's Crusaders, but I think I want something different this year. If you have any suggestions let me know :)

Hi! I just found your blog thanks to the five ingredient friday hosted by overwhelmed with joy and thought I might put my two cents in. (BTW, what a beautiful baby boy you have, too cute!) Since his name is Joey, why not do something along the kangaroo line. I was thinking soemthing like Jumps For Joey or Team Kangaroo or something like that. Whaddaya think?
