Special Olympics Joy

Just before my son raced in the snowshoeing event this past Tuesday at Special Olympics he said, "Stopping is not an option, right?" I thought it was such an interesting question. Kids who have worked very hard to learn a skill use that skill. Yay for students and teachers and parents of kids with special needs! And yay for all the big-hearted people who volunteer at Special Olympics!  (Since I originally posted this I have reconsidered some ideas. Of course, stopping is an option, if my son wants to.  He enjoys participating,  When he doesn't, he won't.).

I know I'm extremely late in commenting, but I just had to tell you how happy these pictures make me.
You can't look at this sweet face and not smile with him.
I loved it!
