My 13 year old son competed in the Wyoming Special Olympics this past weekend. He competed in Basketball (silver medal), 50 meter dash (gold medal), Softball throw (gold medal), Running long jump (gold medal), and the 4x100 relay (silver medal). All and all a very good weekend. I'm very proud of him. :tt1 :Clap :Clap :Clap

Well done Sir! People who have special needs kids understand what success is like.

Big high-fives across the states to you and him!

Gold in the individual events and silver in the team events. :Bow :Clap Congrats.

My 7 year old has a piano recital tonight. No medals will be given out, but I'm pretty impressed that the little guy can play "Ode to Joy" while his old man is lucky to be able to play "Mary Had a Little Lamb."

:Bow :Bow to Fordfixer Jr. that is friggen awesome. I'm proud of our kids, but, they don't have the additional challenge of being special needs children. Allow me to drag out a special congratulations that was reserved only for those special moments on Steeler message boards: The very best to Fordfixer Jr. and his family!

With this group's Photoshopping skills, being camera shy is probably a good thing. :lol:

However, we are respectful and only photoshop famous athletes or folks on this board who consent to such a thing (unless you are the fan of a division rival and paint genitalia on your face...then all that goes out the window).

Good thinking I'll forget about posting pic's, most would not photoshop him but some in this crowd I'm not too sure about :lol:

BTW how did your son do at his recital?

He did great...thanks for asking. He played 4 songs, which were the most for his age group (everyone else did 2 songs). He also played all four of them from memory, while most students were able to play one from memory and the other using their book.

Even my 4 year old daughter got to play at the recital, which was a surprise, since she is not officially taking lessons. She goes to all of Jake's lessons, and his teacher will take 5 or 10 minutes when Jake's weekly lesson is over to work a little bit with Riley, even though she is younger than he usually teaches. During the recital, right before Jake was scheduled to play in the program, he called Riley up to play one of her scales and "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and everybody at the recital thought it was really cute.

Cool story Ruth. Never could get my kids excited about music. Bummer because I love it. It has been a part of my family for a long time.

You will treasure these memories for a long time.
