    The daughter of one of my husband's former co-workers is in Athens Greece competing in the World Special Olympics Summer Games. Chelsea won the gold medal in the 400 meter and the 800 meter races! She is from a tiny town in Northcentral Arkansas. We are all so excited for her!!! Hopefully someone will sponsor a super nice float for her in the Water Carnival Parade that is the first of August. She is a wonderful young woman, and we are all so proud of her!

    PS Her your sister's boy friend went to Greece also and proposed to Kendra while on an island in the Aegean Sea! Great trip for the entire family!

    Congratulations to her and to her family to be. It can be quite a challenge to train for the Olympics. Her family stood beside her.
