It's that time of the year again – October! With the leaves turning crispy and colorful in other states of this country and with the air turning degrees cooler, we are also brought National Down syndrome Awareness Month (courtesy, I believe, of the Reagan Administration).
October Down syndrome Weekend Blog Hop
The point of the October Down syndrome Weekend Blog Hop is raise awareness regarding Down syndrome, connect the Down syndrome blogging community and to inspire our blogging selves with the our collective awesomeness!
Those of you that are participating in the 31-for-21 Blogging Marathon, please select the one post you liked best that you posted in the course of the week and share that on the Hop.
For those of you that are not participating in 31-for-21, please select either a new post or a favorite past post and share that.
For Those of You that Like Prompts:
Ellen Stumbo has shared optional prompts for the hops. They are:
Oct 5 – 7: A defining moment
Oct 12-14: If I knew then what I know now
Oct 19-21: Celebrating milestones
Oct 26-28: What I look forward to
These (wonderful) prompts are entirely optional: follow them if you'd like.

Share this Hop! The more the merrier!
Blog Hop Code:
There will be a link "get code" at the bottom of each blog hop – it would be great to click, copy and paste the code to your own blog. When you do that, you yourself become a host for the Blog Hop. You help share the diversity of expression, thought and belief in our writing community when you include the voices of everyone else in the Hop.
The National Down syndrome Society has created a Blogger Guide – which includes links to a preferred language guide, resources and lots of suggestions for doing more – and springboarding to greater action. Check it out HERE.
31 for 21 is a daily blogging endeavor to raise awareness about Down syndrome. To participate and/or learn more, please visit 31-for-21 at Big Blueberry Eyes
