On Saturday, we traveled to The College of New Jersey [Trenton State] and Emma Sage participated in her "first" Special Olympics.
We also got to watch the Gymnastics and Swimming events and Emma Sage is eager to participate in both as she gets older!! Actually, she will start gymnastics this fall.....and swimming [and yes, Momma is just gonna be busier and busier!]
What fun we had!!!!!
The program is called Young Athletes Program and it was started by a grant between the Special Olympics New Jersey and The New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry. Emma Sage got an amazing kit of items to use at home and she had a blast with all the activities.
Here are a few pictures of our day.........Enjoy!!!!
