    The Olympic torch is a comin\' !!!!

    The Olympic torch is here in town!! Well on it's way.... it's just south and being brought up as I type this! It's gonna be right by my house when it starts it trek to downtown. Man, call me sappy but talk about bringing a tear to your eye! I'm gonna go watch a teacher carry it tonight at one of the schools I work with! I watched it before when the Olympics were in Atlanta. They went through Davis just west of here.... it never gets old...! Go USA!!!

    This is gonna sound like I'm braggin(and maybe I am) but When the olympics were in Atlanta, we were only about 45 minutes south of there. Anyway...The ParaOlympics were in Atlanta also. For those that don't know, the para Olympics are for disabled athletes. Well our son got to walk with the torch. We had gone down to see the relay and had hoped to see it as it was passed from one person to another. Turns out not only did we get to see it being passed from one person to another, we also had the gentleman(his name was Jack)ask our son (who was only 2 ) to walk with him. They only walked together for 5 tenths of a mile but that was one of the proudest moments of our life. I cried the whole time. Then as Jack was passing the torch on to the next person he allowed our son to pose for pictures with him and the lady he passed it to. Jack has since passed away but his memory and what he allowed our son to do will live with in our hearts and our minds forever. This was proably a once in a life time event. But I will cherish it forever. It gives me goose bumps to tell the story now and still brings tear to my eyes when I think about it.

    That's really cool Donna. The lady we went to watch carry it is in a wheel chair... shes the PE teacher at the school. I think that is so awesome she does what she does. Nothing slows her down!
