1. It is spring break! Since Joe and I work for the same school district we both have off this week! It's been awesome spending the time together as a family. I hope this week goes by very slow!

2. I celebrated the birthdays of three very important people in my life; my husband, my mom, my mother-in-law and it was also the birthday of three amazing friends, Lindsay, Sarah and Sarah. Talk about a jam-packed first two weeks of April!

3. Recently we joined the DCDSIG (Delaware County Down Syndrome Interest Group) and have been to our first two functions in the past two weeks. There have been so many amazing families that we met. I can't wait to develop even stronger connections with the members of this group throughout the years.

4. This blog was featured in a digital magazine about Down Syndrome! The magazine, Special Miracles, was the same one that inspired me to start Beautiful Beginnings! I was so honored that Sabrina, the founder of the magazine, liked my World Down Syndrome Day lesson plans from my previous post and wanted to write about them in Special Miracles. How cool is that?!

|The Facebook add for the magazine! While it does say I am a Special Education teacher, I am actually just a substitute for the district. Wishful thinking I guess!|
