Last weekend, Matthew participated in his Special Olympics City Swim Meet. The meet was at Skyline Aquatic Center, which is an Olympic Trial pool. We were acutally there awhile back for the Arena Pro Swim Series. Fun that he gets to swim there!
Matthew swam 100m Butterfly, 100m Freestyle and the 25x4 Individual Unified Medley. He brought home a Gold, a Silver and a Bronze! One of each, he told me!
We love Special Olympics and all the different sports and opportunities that it brings to Matthew! We feel that the program here in Mesa is a great program! he loves seeing all his buddies and really shining when he is at these events!

On Saturday, October 1st, Matthew participated with his 8th Grade Competitive Basketball team in the City Championships! I am going to post more about this later, so this is a little cart before horse, but oh well!
 They ended up the season 11-0 - the perfect season! So, so cool!
And it was such a great experience for Matthew (and the whole team, I think!)!
I will write a post later (when I have some more time) on this season, why it was different from his 7th Grade JH team and how things went.
But for now - a few photos! We are so very proud of him and the whole team!!!!

These are Matthew's back to school photos from this year as he entered 8th grade. He loves basketball, swimming - pretty much sports in general - fixing his hair and girls. LOL!

We had a very different Halloween this year. No candy, no Trick-or-Treating (first time in 17 years!), none of the usual Halloween things. Instead we watched Ryan in a Band Competition. We got there at 1pm. They went on at 2:15pm and it was a great show! Then we had to wait until 6:30pm for the awards ceremony. They received 1st place in their division! :)
Michael and Matthew went home for a bit inbetween, but I stayed to watch the other bands. So fun to watch all the shows...
 


You can see Ryan - he is the 2nd Tuba from the right...


He's dead center in this one...

Every morning, Matthew still has his dance/singing session with the pups in the backyard...



Here's a pic of our decorations that they made, all lite up! I picked them up on Halloween morning, for we knew we weren't going to be home on Halloween...

Matthew lost a tooth tonight! One of the uppers. He still has quite a few that need to come out. This was taken the next morning after he woke up and saw the tooth fairy came!

Wednesday I went to Matthew's PE class in the afternoon. He has PE the last hour of the day and they were running the mile today. I went to help them pace - doing a 12 minute mile. It was fun and he was happy to see me! But I forgot to take a selfie with him! :(  Matthew did 3 laps (we think), so 3/4 of a mile.
Wednesday means ST day, so Mr. Colten came over. They played a Memory game and then did some contrast and comparisions with sport cards...

Reading ingredients and measuring everything out...


Mixing and then filling the cups...


Popping them back out of the cake pop maker...


And then frosting them...





They turned out cute and tasted yummy!!!!

On Saturday, Michael, Matthew and I went to their Special Olympics City Golf Meet. We had to walk the 9 holes, so I ended up caddying. Luckily, it was a fairly nice day!


 






They ended up with a 55 for the 9 holes. They take turns hitting the ball and switch the lead person each hole. We played with 2 other Unified teams. They ended up taking home the silver medal! Michael's first medal!
I went and helped out at the Band Competition after that. Ryan's Marching Band took 2nd place in their division!
