Please consider... (redux)(again)

(We've doubled our goal, thought I would bring this up one more time to remind everyone those that may have meant to, or missed the first 2 posts on this. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!)

The Minnesota Down Syndrome Association has become a very important organization to the Linkert family. They offer a number of resources for individuals with Down syndrome, and their families, including “Down Comforter” packets for new and expectant parents, parent groups, newsletter, social activities, and many other wonderful services. They have been truly instrumental in our entry into this unexpected pathway of our life, and we are very grateful for them.

We are asking are friends and family to join in DSAM’s biggest fundraiser, the 2006 Buddy Walk. The Buddy Walk promotes awareness and advocacy for people with Down syndrome. Last year over 5000 people participated in Minnesota’s Buddy Walk. Janet and I, along with my parents and the Burfeinds, are taking part, and forming “Team Hero”. Our goal is to raise $250 for this fantastic organization. Please consider Maeve “Hero” Linkert, be a “buddy” and sponsor “Team Hero” in the Buddy Walk.


Thank you.

September Linkletter

Fun family news at the...


My apologies... who are you anyway?

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have no good excuse but that I've been tired, and working on other things. I hope everyone found thier way here after the switch... I should've put the reminder up a day earlier.

It's strange to keep this blog up sometimes, because I'm not always sure people are watching or keeping up. I spend a lot of time putting what I think is a super cute video together, and posted... then I hardly get a response in the comments. Janet heard today that only one percent of a blogs viewers actually comment.

So I'm pleading now for some comments. You should post a comment like "You have really cute girls" or "Boy GML4, you sure have a great wife, have you told her that lately?" or "Hey Matt, cut the talk and post more pics!". When you do, share you name, or your initials... someway we might be able to figure out who you are...

So click comment, and share something... by my math we should have about 400 comments here by Monday afternoon.

The dog doesn't seem to mind...

She can now climb up on to my parents automan (or is it ottoman?) Anyway she gets stronger all the time... taking steps between furniture, or just in the middle of the room. It's very cool to watch.
