We seem to stay on the go around here! Elijah has his first basketball game in the morning so I will post game pictures hopefully tomorrow. Sarah is going to a dance clinic in the afternoon and will get to perform with the dance team at an area high school. She is excited to dance with the big kids. I am sure she will have tons of fun and I will have tons of pictures to post! All 3 kids get to go to Buddy Break tonight while Doug and I have a date night! WooHoo!! Buddy Break is a respite program for families of children with special needs. Each child is assigned a "buddy" that watches and helps them for the night. They have a ton of activities for the kids to do and the kid gets to pick what they want to do. All of the buddies have been trained to work with special needs. Elijah loves to go and be the center of attention of his buddy. This is really good for him. Isaac is finally crawling! He crawled for the first time a few nights ago and as I was typing this has crawled several times!! SO excited to see him on the move.
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
