Special Olympics World Games 2011

Some of you may remember that last summer we found out Angela qualified for the World Games in Athens, Greece. She was among the last 15 in the pool of accepted athletes, but there were only eight spots for MN. All the other athletes who were chosen were over 18 so the committee decided it would be better if Angela didn't go this time.

The opening ceremony for the world games was last week too. Here are a few video clips. We spent our weekend at the State Summer games thinking about our MN athletes, and hoping they were doing well, and having the time of their lives, representing the Team USA. Here's a link to the Team USA Journal if you'd like to keep track of how they're doing!

Here are a couple videos from the Opening Ceremonies

Wow, all three of those gave me chills. Thank you for sharing them. Sorry Angela couldn't go this year, but I'm pretty certain she'll be there one day!!
