When Ty turned 8 he was allowed to participate in Special Olympics. He loves being part of a team so this has been great for him. His first competition was "basketball skills". They had a parade of athletes and an opening ceremony. It was really hard to control my emotions as I was looking around and realizing that this is our life...! He had a great time and we are all very proud of him.
Parade of Athlete's
Opening Ceremonies...passing the torch
Waiting to get started
We got lots of thumbs up's the whole day!
Getting his bronze medal was the best! He was so proud of himself, he ran out there like he owned the place.
