They Aren't Stupid

I have been called to school several times to pick Shannon up because they say she is sick or not acting like herself. They told me she is just laying her head down on the table and she normally just doesn't do that. Well I go and get and bring home and she is not sick at all. She gets something to eat and turns the tv on and gets me to start her favorite movie that she likes to watch on. I went to school This past Monday and told them that Shannon is not sick. It can be one of several things, She is tired because she is having to get up earlier to catch the bus, her allergies are acting up and I have given her medicine, or she has just learned that if she puts her head down they are going to call me and she is going to get to come home. I don't think she likes her teacher and she can't tell me in words but in actions. I may be wrong but sometimes it is hard to figure out what she wants. Tell me what you think. Do you think that she has just learned what will get her to come home or not? Interested in your opinion.

Trick or Treat

Last night we went trick or treating on a trailer with hay in it. Shannon had a great time. When Shannon goes up to get the candy and hold her bag out. She continues to hold her bag out like that's not enough give me more. There were several people that would give her a handful of candy when they saw that she had Downs. One lady said this is for you because you are special and God's gift. I agree with that because she is God's gift us. At first we would have to walk with her but then we let her go and follow the other kids that was with us. She would look back and make sure of where we were and keep on going to get her candy. It was about 9 pm when we got done and she was tired out that she fell asleep in the car on the way home. If you are interested to see what she looks like her pictures will be posted on myspace site pretty soon.
