Elisabeth Bowls 65!

Yes, that's Elisabeth yawning at her bowling tournament sponsored by the Special Olympics. She got up early Saturday morning putting in a respectable score of 65 which is better than her Mommy ever did.

Can't say enough good things about Special Olympics because it allows our kids to be who they are without being patronized for their disability label. Do you know what I mean? It's ironic, isn't it?

There was this guy I listened to on the radio who was talking about his experiences after his bicycle accident in the 6th grade that left him dependent on his wheelchair for mobility. He was saying that if people would only separate his disability from who he is, the world would be such a beautiful place to live.
