Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit! We hope to share with you our journey of raising a child with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. If this is your first time here, please start by reading Caitlyn's Story. It will share the beginning of her life with you. Enjoy!

Caty the 1st Grader…

School started on August 10th for Caty and she couldn’t have been more excited.  To say that she loves school is an understatement.  Scott and I are both so happy that she enjoyed it so much. 

On the Friday before school started, the class lists were posted.  We were thrilled that Caty would be in the same class as her friend Kylie and Aubrey – the girls have been together since they started preschool at age 3.

When we saw the lists, we also found out that Caty would have two teachers this year.  Mrs Buettner and Mrs Olcomendy have been team teaching for 7 years now.  I got a call from Mrs Buettner on that same Friday night and we chatted about close to half and hour.  We set up a meeting for the day before school started, just to make sure that everything was ready for Caty and for us to all meet in person.

All ready to go!!

Loves her homework


And just after 2 weeks into the school year she already knew all of the 100 sight words for 1st grade. 


Have a wonderful school year Caty bug!!
