SPECIAL OLYMPICS (field hockey)

Jakob's class at the olympics
Jakob was having so much fun and so proud of himself!
He was so excited for his friends too and cheered everyone on.
          GOOD JOB JAKOB!!



Jakob had another successful experience at special olympics this year!!! with his school they have the opportunity to compete in the special olympics games (not the real ones, but just practice games). Jakob has so much fun and is quite the athlete. Jakob came home from his field hockey games with the 'gold metal' or in his case the blue ribbon!! we are so proud of Jakob and love seeing him do so well! his teacher is a chair person for the real special olympics and when Jakob turns 8, she will help him get involved. we are excited!!

That is awesome. I have a cousin with mental retardation. He won two golds in downhill racing (skiing). When asked by a reporter if he was happy, Chris said, "No! I already won a gold. I wanted the silver medal this time."

Even if he wasn't excited, we were!
