Awkward Uncle has gone to the State Special Olympic Games as long as anyone can remember, and no one can agree on when that started. Was it 1996? 1997? Who was president? No one knows. It is so much a part of our June plans that we are startled on the rare occasions when he doesn't win a regional gold medal and go to the state games. We simply have no idea how to spend Father's Day weekend if we aren't spending it fighting for a good view of the Knights of Columbus at the opening ceremony, racing all over campus looking for members of our party, finding a non-crowded place to eat, convincing Super Baby to please just go to sleep in the strange hotel room, and slowly melting in the humidity of a indoor pool while waiting for Awkward Uncle and trying to keep an ever-growing number of Supers out of the water. Why would anyone want to do anything else? That is the real question!
Our peeks at Awkward Uncle during the weekend are always at weird angles or across a stadium full of people. But they are well worth it!
Stay tuned this week, Super Readers! Awkward Mom has a whole series of Special Olympic posts prepared and get a gander at some of these antics:

And, nobody wants that.
