Paige Went To School Today!!

Yay!! We were so happy to bundle up and walk to school, even though it was pouring rain, and we were soaked when we arrived. We must have been a sight to see - Paige laid out straight in her wheelchair with blankets covering her entire body, her brown converse high-tops peeking out the end, and me, mopped down like a wet puppy, pushing her along.

But - we had smiles on our faces, and that's what mattered! Paige was so happy to see her friends again - to go into school and just be surrounded by everyone happy to see her. There's still lots of logistical things to figure out, but we stayed for two hours or so, and then bundled up and came home.

Her little soul needed a happy day - I'm glad she got it!

A sweet friend of mine wrote an article entitled 'A Choice of Words Is A Choice Of Words'.

Would you mind reading the article and leaving a few comments as to your thoughts on the use of the word 'retard' in today's society. A couple of different views would be awesome.

or you can go to www.mormonmommywars.com and just look for the post A Choice of Words Is A Choice Of Words.

I don't want this opportunity to help educate just kind of pass by, ya know. I'm not looking to start any wars, just educate a la GIFTS style.

Many thanks and Parky smooches......
