This blog lets you keep up with the W family. Our three boys are John who is 17 and very into sports, Noah who is 14 going on 21 and is trying to keep up with his big brother and little Ben, who is the sweetest little 8 year old, who happens to have Down syndrome.
Today is Spread the Word to End the Word Day. To help celebrate and spread the word I made a power point presentation and presented it to the 4, 5 and 6th grade classes at school. I ordered a new shirt for the occasion, and everything went pretty well. The
kids in our school are really great. They are so helpful where Ben is
concerned and I have never heard any of the kids use the "r-word". In
fact, when I asked what they should do if they hear the r-word, tons of
hands went in the air and they all had great ideas about different
things they could say.
