I'll be there...will you?

Guest post by Kelli

The National Down Syndrome Convention is fast approaching...July 16th-18th in Orlando, FL. I'll be there...will you?

Last year Monica over at Monkey Musings designed badges for all moms that attended and blog about their life with Down Syndrome so that everyone could be easily identified. This year, as she is expecting their 5th child (brave, brave woman)...she has passed the baton, to me! So, if you are attending and would like a badge, please let me know by commenting on this post or emailing me at livinglifewithes (at) yahoo (dot) com.

I hope many of you do attend...I cannot wait to meet you and shake your hand...oh, who am I kidding, I would love to give you a big fat hug... you have become an extention of my family through your encouragement and support. I can't wait to see your smiling faces in person and tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your lives through your blogs.

If you haven't registered yet..make sure you hurry over to the website and do it now, you have to register before June 10th to get the early bird rate (it sounds like I am talking about a meal, doesn't it!). If you haven't decided whether or not you are going...well consider that it's in ORLANDO where there is always an abundance of sunshine and fun, especially for the kiddos!

I would like to make sure that everyone that plans on attending gets a badge so if you woudn't mind helping me spread the word, I would really appreciate you linking back to this post from your blog or mentioning it in some way so that I can make sure that all DS bloggers receive a badge if they want one.

Hope to see you all in July!!!

(Note from ds.mama... Well, we were planning on going and then something big, something huge happened (I'll tell you about it later this week ;-) and we had to change our plans for this summer. We'll miss you guys and Mickey too.)


  1. Thanks so much for spreading the word about the badges! I do wish you were going to be there so I could meet you, can't wait to find out what BIG thing happened!

  2. Just say the something huge is good!!! WAITING!!!! I just went and harassed Kelli because I misread the comment at the end of the post and thought it was her who had the news. I'm so impatient.

    I'm so bummed out that we can't go to the convention! I'll get there one of these years.

  3. I wish I was going but alas we too had unexpected things "happen" this year so next year for SURE we need a HUGE reunion :)!!!

  4. I'm undecided about going. Marissa is still so little I'm not sure if I should go with and force my husband to go or just leave the 2 of them home alone. I just don't know...

    What's the HUGE news though? I'm on the edge of my seat... :-)

  5. I'm so sad we're not able to go this year. I just gave my room up to someone. Hope everyone has a great time!

  6. I think we will be there! Working hard to make it happen. And now I am completely intrigued though about your news.....


Please share your experience and opinions, or ask a question. I won't even mind if you correct me on something.
