Rachel competed in the local Special Olympics again this year. She had a great experience last time--despite the awful weather and freezing temps. This year the weather was just about perfect. We deliberately came late because last year we seemed to wait around forever without any real purpose. Rachel competed in three events--softball throw, standing long jump, and 50 yard dash, and she got three medals, including gold in the 50 yard dash. I really like that they go out of their way to provide medals for as many people as possible. I also like that its good practice for when she (hopefully) decides to do track someday.
The boys and Rachel did Spring soccer, as well. I was really proud of them--they all learned a lot!
