Wordless Wednesday — Ice Sledge Hockey

WW - Ice Sledge Hockey - Paralympics

Ice Sledge Hockey at the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics

Watching the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics was an incredible experience. I was thrilled that my son Jackson got the chance to see such inspiring athletes.

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

I wish these games were shown on television as are the Olympics. I get even more inspired by these athletes and I would love for my children to see them compete as well. That was a great opportunity you got to share w/Jackson.

But we’re primed and ready to go – whenever the flooring guys get here!

I’m constantly amazed by what people can push themselves to do, despite what we’d consider “setbacks”. How inspiring!
I’d love for you to stop by again and link your Wordless Wednesday post up on my linky. My post is up and let’s just say that The Monkey Needs a Drink!

Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud

Wish there was as much coverage for these Olympics as there was for the other Olympics last month. These athletes are so inspiring! So glad you got to share the moment with your son!

I will visit WW participants slowly but surely. Using a different…OLD…computer and it’s not working so hot.
