Saturday was a pretty exciting day for Sammy! Well, truth be told, for Mom and Dad, too, as it marked the first day since his colonoscopy that we weren’t on the every-ten-minute-poop-patrol. Although we’re still waiting for all the biopsy results, he seems to be turning a corner. (Please don’t let me have just jinxed us!!)
Anyway … Saturday morning I was helping a friend man the TACA (great organization – check them out at www.tacanow.org) table at the Hamilton County Autism Support Group’s (another fabulous organization. – check them out at www.hcasg.org) Race for Autism. Pete brought Sam to ride his little bike in 4 year old and under race.
The festivities kicked off with his group at 11:00. Sam was initially a little confused about the track and what he was supposed to do, but he got the hang of it and was so excited for his medal. So excited, in fact, that he found his way into another race and somehow ended up with a second medal!
And he kept going. And going. And going. Our little energizer bunny raced around and around the grounds until nearly 1:00 when we had to force him to leave to get some lunch!
The Indianapolis Star was there taking pictures and asked Pete for Sam’s name and info… Watch for him in the Thursday Hamilton County section!
