According to my little blogoversary ticker down towards the bottom of our blog, May 6 marks the one year anniversary of us entering into the wonderful world of blogging! Happy Day! I started this blog to help raise awareness about Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and also to keep our family and friends up to date on our busy lives. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and getting to know all of you and I appreciate all the support we get and all of the kind comments. This blog has been such a blessing and is a constant reminder that we are not alone in our daily challenges of raising a child with CdLS. Thank you so much! As your reward, I went back in the archives and pasted in a couple of blog posts from one year ago. Enjoy!

We have survived another hectic weekend in the Riedmiller household! John's Mariner's baseball team went 2-0 in a double header in Lincoln on Saturday. Tommie's Mariner's team went 1-4 in a tournamnet in Omaha played on Saturday and Sunday. They will spend this week getting ready for the Mariner's tourney here in Columbus May 9-11. Shawn had the little ones at the park late Sunday afternoon, and Joey climbed up the play equipment and proceeded to go down the big tornado slide all by himself! He wasn't scared a bit! Yea Joey!
On Monday evening, Shawn and I attended the 8th grade Honor's night at CMS. John received a Presidential Award for Academic Excellence. We left Tommie home in charge of the little ones and he got along good with them (no phone calls any way!). We hope everyone has a great week!

Governor Heineman, John (& Joey's picture) & Rachelle
John and I traveled to Lincoln on Wednesday, May 7, to receive a signed proclamation from Govoernor Heineman recognizing Saturday, May 10 as Nebraska Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Awareness Day. We decided not to take Joey as he has preschool class on Wednesdays, and we did not want him to miss attending as he only has yesterday and next Wednesday, May 14th left before school is out for the summer. We took his picture that John held up during the short ceremony. It was a great experience, and I am always excited to spread awareness about CdLS.
