Special Olympics 2011

At today's Pep Band gig, we did the Opening Ceremonies for the Maryland Special Olympics Summer Games.

This is the first year since I've been doing this gig that I've actually seen the torch that was lit. I usually only see it on the television monitors in the auditorium, but this year we went through the exit where the torch was set up.

And of course, Joe Flacco was there and made a speech.

Olympic athelete, Kimi Meisner, is at the far podium in that picture.
After getting home, I finished putting my first bracelet in the Botanical Charm Club, Fleur de Turquoise. I'm proud of myself for actually finishing it!
