Volunteering at the Special Olympics

This past Friday we volunteered at the Special Olympics! All of us girls had such a wonderful time! How could you not? We were assigned to the Awards booth and frankly, we couldn't have asked for a better assignment! The awarded athletes were nothing but smiles and laughs. Some threw their arms up in the air as a sign of victory and grinned a grin that spread ear to ear. We high fived them, cheered them on, and helped them around. One of the girls that was volunteering even got kissed on the cheek by one of the athletes! They couldn't have been more excited and we were so fortunate to be there to share their wonderful experience!

Haha that was way fun. But, I was not just kissed on the cheek Tanya, I got kissed on the NECK! Haha.. it was a little awkward. I'm glad you could witness it. So fun though!!
