NDSC 40th Annual Convention

The National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC) 40th Annual National Convention will be held in Washington, D.C. in July 2012, and I can't wait!!!!

The last time I went to the conference was when Angela was 9 and it was in Atlanta, GA.  It was too  hot for her there!!! Then we had to skip a couple of years. Then next year we would have been able to go it was held in Orlando. Ummm..Orlando in July for this young lady who doesn't sweat is not a good mix. Last year was San Antonio, TX and we didn't go for the same reason, plus Axel was in his halo and would have been miserable. And while there was lots of water, etc. he couldn't do water with the halo. But this year? WE ARE GOING!!!!!! Angela will be 16 and hanging out and making friends with the other young adults and Axel will be hanging with us! ;-)

Oh, I cannot wait. Now, to save money for flights and conference registration. And in D.C, our nation's capital where I've always wanted to take a look around!

FYI - it's miserably hot here in July, too... LOL

Looking forward to meeting you all then!

You will love D.C. so many things to see and do! But I was there this past July and it was 115-120 degrees with humidity the whole week, lol. My cousin's pool water at the condo was 98, ugh!

Fortunately we now have Angela's new cooling vest, which works GREAT! Between that and Axel being out of his halo, we're good to go. It was in the 100's in MN this summer too. LOL
