A Special (Olympics) day

What a great day at the Special Olympics Provincial ski championships. Ten weeks ago Louis could barely stand up on skis without falling and yesterday he was racing. Our family spent most every Sunday of our winter traveling two hours each way to volunteer by working with other athletes and to watch Louis improve each week. If you ever want to get inspired...spend some time with these determined athletes and this great program. Our ski hats are off to Danielle who also gave her time on these Sundays. Many teenagers would be happy staying home and Facebooking or hanging out with friends, but she was a great partner for a 15-year old girl named Jessica. For those of you with family or friends with special needs, you know how important it is for these extraordinary kids and adults to have an extraordinary friend. We will miss our Sunday ski days.
