Ryan had his first Special Olympics Track & Field day yesterday. What a very special day it was (although a bit overwhelming for Ryan and his Mommy!) It was a beautiful warm day and the field was full of Special Olympians, peer supports, teachers and parents. Ryan competed in the Bean Bag Throw, the 50 m dash and the Obstacle Course. (Children age 5-7 participate in "alternative" events, not regular track & field events.) I'm so proud of my little guy - he got 1st in the 50 m dash, 2nd in the bean bag throw and 3rd in the Obstacle course.
Check out the 50 m dash - sorry the video is a bit wobbly at first, but it gets better
