Special Olympics 2011

AnnaKate’s school participates in the Special Olympics Young Athletes Program. I always very feel honored when I get to go. It was a perfect spring day to celebrate all these athletes and their accomplishments. Their moto says it all:

Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
