Little Feets Meet ....

Today I had the honor of watching
my grandson participate in our county's event which is
a part of the Special Olympics in Virginia.

These events are for special needs children who are enrolled
in our county's special education programs.
Our grandson Maddox has been in this program through our school
system since he was 3 years old. And it's one of the best parts
of his life, he loves it and thrives in school.

Today's program was so sweet to attend. Your heart explodes with 
love, happiness and joy for these children. Your heart also breaks
for the challenges these children have.

Maddox loves to people watch.....

love this guy just so much

the races are his favorite....

Our son participates in the Polar Plunge, jumping in to 
the ocean in February to raise money that supports this event. He does
it to honor Maddox

If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of these you should do it. It doesn't matter whether you know someone there or not, you should go. It's's heartwarming and you've just never seen so many children so happy that they are given the opportunity to do things
other children do.
