The Return of Sammy's Superheroes!

Lady-mens & Gentlemen! Boys & girls of all ages! Please welcome back...Sammy's Superheroes!

That's the way Ella announces herself on "stage," which is a small area of our living room. She's quite confident in her theatrical abilities. I love it.

I'm thrilled to announce that we will again be participating in the Step Up for Down Syndrome walk in Duluth on Sunday, September 29. Our little Sammy was only three months old last time but he showed he makes quite the impressive superhero. We'll all be dressing up again, which caught the attention of many at the walk last year. Click here for lots of great photos from last year.

We've been blessed tremendously by the Down syndrome community here in Duluth. Down Up North is a group of families that meets once a month for fellowship and education. Just a few weeks ago we were able to attend their summer picnic, which included a pretty fantastic puppet show and activities for the kids. Without a group like this, it would be harder to get a hold of valuable resources in the city or to find the answers to so many questions we have. That's why we want to support the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota through being a part of the walk. They are doing great things!

We'll be holding a yard & cupcake sale again this year to raise money for Sammy's Superheroes. That will be on Saturday, September 21 from 8am to 3pm in our very own yard. Mini cupcakes will be for sale for $6 a dozen. They sold like hot cakes last year, so be sure to stop by before noon if you want to score the (now fairly rare) Little Yellow Kitchen delights! If you would like the address of the sale, email me at olsen.angela {at}

If you are not able to make it to the yard sale and would like to donate to Sammy's team, please jump over to OUR DONATION PAGE. There you will find instructions on how to donate. Last year we raised $1,742. Let's see what we can do this year!
