gold winner

During the preliminaries we almost didn't think Mason would end up running the race. He was all ready to run and then they fired off the gun. Mason hates loud noises so he just stood there with his hands over his ears not moving. They spent several minutes trying to talk him into running. He eventually did so we spent the rest of the day talking to him about it so he would be ready for the real thing.

Mason was so cute when he was racing. He was smiling the whole time, having a hard time staying in his lane but as he got close to the finish line he started skipping because he knew he was the winner!

Mason was very excited to win the gold medal. He has been talking about winning the gold for months now. After he got his gold medal he tried to give them back the bronze from his softball throw. He said he didn't want the bronze anymore just the gold.

We are so proud of Mason! He has come a long way these past few years. He has started talking and even teases and plays with other children. It is so exciting to see him progress. He is doing so well in school and has started going to regular ed class for part of the day. While talking to other mothers of special needs kids I found out they have a Miracle League in Arlington for special needs kids(baseball). I can't wait to get him involved this fall!
