Lily got homeschooled while Daniel slept in this morning. We all took a long walk together after we were all dressed and fed, and I got an awesome workout pushing almost 70 lbs (Lily+Daniel+carseat+stroller) for over half an hour! I planted some stuff, and Lily got to play in the backyard for at least an hour.

I have a few blog entries planned this week that I am really excited to share. Here's an overview:
- A few products/services offered by people with Down syndrome who inspire me so much.
- Daniel's birth story, which I hope to share on Friday.
- Daniel's diagnosis story, which I hope to share on Saturday.
- Sharing the experience of our first Buddy Walk!
