A Day To Remember

This past weekend, Seth competed in a regional bowling tournament for special Olympics. He had to bowl three games in a row. He did great for the first two, with keeping his attention. On the third game, the lane kept messing up and half way through the thing would freeze up making it having to completely start over with the game. It happened twice, so really they bowled 5 games. It kind of got me irritated because Seth had really good scores and on the second and third time he didn't get as good, but oh well. All the athletes didn't care how many pins they knocked down, they are all so happy that they even got to play, they all what everyone to do good and most of all have fun. But when some one got a strike, everyone around you give the person a high five! When they gave the awards out none of the athletes care what color their award was or about what height of box they stood on at the podium. They just were so happy to have their names announced so proudly over the sound system. I want to live in their world all the time where everyone is equal and all you want if for the person next to you to do good and be happy. What a world this would be if we could all take that road in life. There was over 100 hundred athletes in all competing so the area missionaries volunteered to help out with a lane and keep a watch out for run away players. They were all so happy and made the day even better. Seth ended up taking 3rd place and it was dang cute when they announced his name. He got a big huge smile on his face and was so proud of himself. It was an amazing day for him. The other athletes that competed were Tony Lefeaver ( took 3rd) Clint Rasmussen (took 2nd) Allison wall (took 2nd) Tyler Eddie (took 1st) and Cage Allen (taking 2nd).
