When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

We had lots of fun this St. Patrick's Day!  Seamus and his friends formed an impromptu rap group called the "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" Rappers!  They traveled to each classroom and performed their Irish rap for the school!

Grace and her friend Maggie performed a beautiful Irish dance in front of the whole school!  I'm so proud of how far she has come with her dancing in one year!

Happy St.Patrick's Day to all of our friends!  May your troubles be less, may your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door!  Slainte!

We had fun this weekend at the Syracuse Motorsports Expo!  The Camenga Racing team had their amazing show car on display, and the kids just couldn’t get enough of all the great displays.

Liam could have spent all day sitting in a race car!


Showing some UD pride!  The kids spent hours handing out Understanding Dwarfism stickers and awareness flyers!

Seamus has successfully passed his test to become a Tae Kwon Do blue belt!  (Only stinky phone pics, bummer!!)


Here’s a small piece of the forms that the kids perform for belt testing:

Fun with Little Littles

Wow, I didn’t realize how much time has passed since my last blog post!  We’ve been busy with everyday stuff, and gearing up for an exciting spring.  Lots of fun and road trips on the horizon!

This weekend we took a trip to the Korpais to hang out with some of our wonderful LPA buddies (the Little Littles.)  The kids, as always, have an absolute ball together.

Playing basketball


Eating together (we did a LOT of this!)


Superhero dress up!  Seamus as The Hulk, and Ethan as Ironman!


Liam taking a turn as The Hulk!


The kids all loved these blocks (the big kids too!)


Cute kiddos…


Crazy kiddos!


Many thanks to the Korpai family for inviting us all to their home!  We had a great time!
