There Are A Few Changes Coming

I've been a little bored with my blog lately. To be honest, there just isn't that much to write about. I started this blog as a way to share our story. To tell what it's like to live with someone who has Down Syndrome.

There are contrasts between Beth and her sisters that I could write about, but they're not that major and they really don't impact our lives that much. Sharaya and Diana learned to drive, Beth didn't. They go out at night with friends, Beth rarely goes out at night and when she does Chuck and I drive her. They know how much laundry soap to use, Beth uses so much you can smell it clear out in the yard. They know how to spit their toothpaste into the sink, Beth spits all over the faucet and the counters and the mirror... (I swear she's like a sprinkler!)

Their lives are just... different. They would be different even if Beth didn't have Down Syndrome. Beth is a loner. She's like me, she likes her alone time. Life keeps her busy with boring, mundane things and when she gets a few minutes to relax, she likes to be alone. She doesn't talk much and is uncomfortable around people.

There's nothing wrong with that but it certainly doesn't make interesting blogging material.

So, I'm going to start blogging about things that are a little more interesting than toothpaste. Something our family has been doing for more than 30 years.

I know many people dread just the thought of it, but we absolutely love it! Stay tuned!
