Virginia Special Olympics Summer Games....Wow, what a weekend!

Wow, what a weekend! The 2016 Virginia Special Olympics Summer Games hosted by the University of Richmond was amazing. We are so fortunate Ally got to participate. Thank you to Tim and Rose Doyle for all their hard work and bringing this opportunity to Area 11 athletes. We also would like to send a sincere thank you to the Office of Stafford County Sheriff, Fredericksburg Police Department, Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office, and all the Law Enforcement in the state of Virginia for participating in the Law Enforcement Torch Run!

Ally ran the 100 Meter and 50 Meter runs this weekend, and wow, did she ever run. Two gold medals! Congratulations sweet girl!

Staying Busy

Ally is staying super busy with school, Baseball, Track & Field, and Keepers of the Faith. Track and Field and Baseball started up a few weeks ago.  I sure wish the weather would get warm and stay warm. It actually started snowing on them during their baseball game...burr!! The kids didn't mind, as long as they were playing, they were happy. Our Keepers of the Faith group meets on the second Sunday of each month.  We have seven girls in our group and it has been so much fun watching the girls work to earn their pins.  They did gardening this past weekend...and of course we had to move  the planting inside since it was still very chilly outside. I'm looking forward to warmer weather and many more fun filled weekends with Ally and her friends! 


Photo Shoot


Our trip to New York City for The Girl Scout photo shoot was an amazing experience for Ally. She had the time of her life and is ready for her next trip :)  Below are a few pictures.........fun times!

 I can't say enough about how wonderful everyone was. I want to thank the advertising agency for Girl Scouts, modeling agency for Girl Scouts, CP Talent Management, the photographer, and everyone else involved with the photo shoot to help Ally be part of the upcoming Girl Scout Catalog! The catalog should be out sometime this summer.
