Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Exciting Day!

It was a very exciting day in the MacDonald household. It was Annie's first day of school today. She's still at the same school as last year but has a new teacher - we absolutly adore her!!! Annie just LOVES school, she missed her friends over the summer and is so excited to meet a whole new group of friends this year! Here she is with all her stuff for the classroom.
James took the bus home from school for the first time today. (I can't believe I have a child who's old enough to take the bus!!) He did great, he looks a little worried here because he wasn't sure which stop to get off at but I asked him how it was and he said "It was AWESOME mom, you've got to try a ride sometime"!
Little Gracie will be 3 in a few weeks so she's old enough to start preschool but I can't believe that 3 years have slipped away already. I remember the day she was born like yesterday and now she's a preschooler. In my quest to hang on to my baby I have decided to keep Gracie home 1 more year and spend some quality time hanging out together. She's a little disappointed that she's not going to school like her brother and sister so I've decided that we will have a little "school" at home. Today we were practicing our shapes. Gracie did a shapes puzzle, a shapes coloring project and then a shapes computer game. We had so much fun just the 2 of us!

Couldn't love these little guys more!!
