Every other Monday all the special needs kids climb into a van and head into Guatemala City for Special Olympics meets. There are kids from all over the surrounding areas, aging from five or so up to grey-haired special needs adults. They all are wear matching uniforms and are given the chance to run fifty, one hundred and two hundred yard dashes.
This week's meet was held at San Mateo Flores, the national futbol team's stadium. The place is huge! And very pretty. We arrived around ten in the morning and went to our assigned sections. Then the kids were called up for their respective races. Not to brag, but our kids placed in the top three spots for pretty much every race!
