Share A Picture Of Your Child’s Halloween Outfit And Be A Part Of An Upcoming Blog Post!

We’re about to head out to go Trick-Or-Treating with some friends around our neighbored and I wanted to share a quick photo of Noah in his little toddler astronaut outfit. One cool fun fact, NASA actually sent Noah this outfit after we did a post on A Smile As Big As The Moon with a note saying they couldn’t wait for him to come to Space Camp one day!

How cool is that!!!

Besides an Astronaut, Noah has also been a lion, and a tiger!

The Epic List Of Activities, Toys And Fun Ideas To Help Your Child Develop Their Creativity

Today I wanted to help Noah explore his creative side. When I think of Noah’s future I hope that there are no limits for him, but I also sometimes worry about what his future holds. I figure that the arts are a way for him to express himself without limits whether it be painting, drama, music, cooking, taking pictures, etc.

There are several great programs and people we have already been exposed to that express themselves artistically while also happening to have Down syndrome.
