After the races, we had a get together at one of the Spartans' house. We had an awesome time of fellowship and food. Our team is so amazing and all of our families get along so well with each other. It is a special bond that we have all formed with each other, and this day was a good one.
The kids receive instructions on how the food line would work. We fed somewhere between 115 and 125 people.
Also, this morning, Kirsten ran with most of the Spartans -- the Race for the Unborn. This race was put together at the last minute to raise money for the Personhood Amendment cause.
Claire, Hannah, and Kirsten before the race. Coach Heather does an amazing job every week coaching our kids to run their best. She also went the extra mile to put this race together. We are so thankful for her dedication to our team, to the running community, and to the unborn who cannot speak for themselves.
This morning, Alec ran the Race for the Cure 5K. He ran in honor of Pam G. from Texas, who is a cancer survivor and a dear friend of ours.
He got to the first mile mark in a fast time.
Here he is coming in to the finish line. He had hoped to finish in around 24 minutes. He did not quite make it that fast, however.

The kids were so excited to get their practice out of the way so the real fun could begin.
Olivia is silly.
At the beginning of the shaving cream war, the kids played freeze tag and no one got too covered in shaving cream...yet.
So many targets, so little shaving cream.
Running has never been so much fun.
Almost time for the free-for-all.
Coach Heather is such a good sport. She always gets in the middle of the action.

Before the start of our annual shaving cream war, we had some play time at Veterans' Park.
Monkeys on the monkey bars. One of the few pictures of Margaret -- she won't allow many pictures to be taken of her.
