I cannot believe we are in the first week of October!! Where does the time go!?! The good thing is, I happen to adore October. Just hope it lasts…because here in the Windy City, I know what comes after fall: the frozen tundra.
But October not only marks my favorite month, it also marks the 3rd Annual Chicagoland Apraxia Walk. Now, let me explain: I have never walked before. Ooops–let me clarify: I have never walked in the apraxia walk. There. Not for lack of want, but for lack of time. This year, I registered for the walk well in advance so that no other things would pop up on my calendar for Saturday, October 15th. (Shameless plug).
Here’s what else I am thinking….the walk should be a ton of fun, a whole day event filled with games, food, kids, goody bags, prizes, vendors, and balloons. (It’s always a celebration when balloons and food are part of the picture, right?!). So, I am taking my family and our voices to Ty Warner Park in….where is it??! Lisle? I will have to look into the specifics.
I hope you can come, too. I hope you can help our children with apraxia unlock their voices, because these kiddos have got a lot to say!
