grateful {special olympics champion!}

i'm getting ready to head back to school to pick up elijah, but wanted to post these:

this morning we had the treat of watching elijah's special olympics program!
he's been participating through his summer school session.
today we saw him show-off his hoop talents :)

i'm happily surprised that he followed through with nearly every activity,
even after seeing us standing by! what a kid!

his teachers and the special olympic young athlete coordinators and volunteers are top-notch darlings.
praise jesus.

he enjoyed a little snack with his coach jozy afterwards :)

and showed off some more moves? in his backwards shirt?

{linking up my gratitude with carina today!}
