Those are some amazing pieces! Is it weird when I get excited to learn of people with DS who have more talent than me?

Thanks for sharing this.
They are so beautiful. So full of life.

Wonderful. It seems the only limits people with disabilities have is what we "normal" people put on them. And then when we turn out back, they go ahead and out do us anyway.

Emily: I have those same thoughts, so it must be weird. :)

Isabel: I just love this painting.

Carole: I wish I had the ability to paint so well...

Laurie: Ya sure you betcha.

That's a typical Minnesotan way of saying "Your welcome." :)
