For the third straight May, Joe has joined a bunch of other kids, teachers and friends for a Little Feet Meet – a junior Special Olympics field day. Read past entries at Little Feet 2014 and Little Feet 2015. Not much to add for this year, except a big thanks to everyone who planned the event, volunteered or showed up to cheer. And special thanks to Ms. Pond and Tyler for the hands-on help getting Joe around to all the games. There’s a full set of photos (includes other kids even!) on Flickr.
Next month Joe turns eight, which means he can start registering for real Special Olympic events. This is going to be fun.
Stuck in the tunnel, dagger eyes saying “Really? Just going to sit there and take pictures. Jerk.”
Not Joe, but this kid carried the torch like a boss. Also, Colonial Heights cops are badass.
He can’t catch yet, or really run, but he does a killer pre-game Haka.
Ms. Pond rocks aviator sunglasses. That’s just how she do.
Joe on the podium! It makes Lia and me so happy that he always gets a massive cheer when his name is called. Also, Tom, if you’re reading this … everyone got a ribbon so suck it.
