Buddy Walk 2012!

Today's Buddy Walk was so amazing for so many different reasons! This was Trent and Chase's fourth year going (which is hard to believe, especially since Chase is just three years old) but it was Caroline's first time and it was neat to have her there after my attending while pregnant with her last year!


Our goal for today was for Chase to walk the whole path by himself when it came time for the "walk" part of the event. In the grand scheme of things, it's a silly and unimportant goal - the point is to celebrate our kids with Down syndrome regardless of where their abilities lie. And the walk is only half a mile. But we were SO proud that Chase could (and did) walk the whole way! He has come so far, and the Buddy Walk each year is a good landmark to look back and see what amazing progress he has made! Go Speed Chaser!

Thanks to everyone who donated to our team and to everyone who supports us with their love year-round! We are so blessed to have so many cheerleaders for Chase in our lives!


  1. He is stinkin' adorable! Turning into such a handsome little man. I wish we could get our boys together. :)

  2. What a great memory for this year! I found an article about DS kids riding horses that I wanted to share with you, but now I can't find it :-(
