special in every way

Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
—Special Olympics Oath 

Here are some photos of Calvin with his awesome one-on-one Mary at today's Special Olympics where, like true champions, they braved wicked cold winds, fifty-degree temperatures and long waits, while I sat on the sidelines, at times with tears in my eyes and at others, complaining.

Go Calvin! Mama's so proud of you!
