15 Blue Ribbons, Two reds and one yellow ribbon

That's the score in Saturday's Area Special Olympics for my kids. We have an entire wall in our playroom with ribbons-all placed near the ceiling so Will won't rip them down.

The kids get so much out of competing.

Here's a secret on how to get a lot of blue ribbons. Have them compete in events that aren't so popular. Like the WALK. Dani does two walk events and always gets blue ribbons for them. It's not a "walk in the park" though (pun intended.) You have to be able to keep at least one foot on the ground at all times. That takes skill.

Today everyone was tired. A nice quiet day. Tomorrow begins Spring Break. I doubt that it will be as quiet!
