I have always loved The Special Olympics, because the focus isn't on winning as much as it is on setting goals and participating, as well as sportsmanship.  Things often forgotten in "normal" sports settings.

Great pics! Thanks for sharing! Where was this held?, the kids from our community participated in the  event as well, wonder if it was the same one!

The pics are great, and I can't really blame Andrew for not liking the color Pink...  I don't know to many boys who do when they get stuck wearing it...

I hope they enjoy themselves, and show you the ribbons when they come home...  I'm sorry that Hubby's back was bothering him, because I'm sure he would've wanted to be there as well.

I've worked a few of these events and they can be such a joy to see the kids and the support...

I love the pics! My oldest son did some Special Olympics track about 2 weeks ago. Sadly, when it came time for him to really compete, he refused. He did great at all the one school events but when they got to the ones out of town with hundreds of people there, he bugged out.:( NO pics for me.
