Yellow Boots

There is far to much going on here, but for the past couple of days anyway we have been soaking in spring time. We still have plenty of dirty snow and ice piles around and lots and lots of mud as the snow is melting quickly. The river is rising and soon roads will be closed so we will have to drive a long way to get any where.

It is international Down Syndrome day today and our DS boy could not be happier. He has on a pair of the girls flowered, yellow, rain boots and an orange and black plaid jacket. He has trudged through the mud to the swing set. He is swinging and singing to the entire neighborhood. You could spot that ear to ear grin anywhere and know that this kid is totally content with being who he is. Those yellow boots are flapping back and forth, back and forth. I don`t know which of us will draw the short straw and have to go retrieve him and get him to come in for dinner and a shower later. For now we will just let him enjoy swinging in the yellow boots.
