Brotherly Love

Yesterday at school Luke had an all school BBQ where families could come and have lunch with their children (now, we all know that BBQ is cafeteria lingo for "mystery meat"...but nonetheless we went!). I knew Luke was excited to have us come join him for lunch so I popped Reid in his stroller and headed over. Just as we entered the campus Luke's class was heading over to the lunch line....when Luke saw us he came bounding over shouting along the way, "Mom, I just wrote about Reid in my journal and read it in front of the class!" and then proceeded to give his best little buddy a hug. It was fun to be there with the other families and to hear Luke's conversations with his friends which were riddled with spontaneous giggles. He loves school! After lunch and before heading out to play what is now his new favorite sport, "handball", he gave his brother another hug and a kiss. He loves being big brother, most specifically to Reid!


MY BROTHER

My brother is very cute and funny. He sometimes scratches me. He has this disability called Down syndrome. Down syndrome means it takes him longer to learn stuff, but I still love him. Do you have a brother?
