Happy World Down Syndrome Day! 3.21 = to represent 3 chromosomes on the 21st pair. Last year I devoted the day to teaching units on diversity in Emma's elementary school. This week I am hanging with the kids watching it snow. Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TUTU! We think it is cool that Tutu's birthday is also Down Syndrome Awareness Day. In honor of both of them, this is the first digital photo that I have of Joe & Tutu. Joe is 6 months old in this photo and Tutu is something like 28 years old (which would have made me about 15 years old, but I am not a math genius). In 4 1/2 years Joe has grown so much!

Anna Celenza is visiting us this week. This morning she was a guest author for Writer's Workshop in Emma's class. The students had read her books and listened to the CDs before she visited. During her time with the second graders she talked about developing ideas for stories. Emma was very proud to have Anna in her classroom.
