This woman's enthusiasm caught my attention last year, so I was delighted
to see her back again this year.
Claire's aide helped her with the football challenge.
Ashley and Claire waited patiently for their turns.
Jeremy and Chris put the balls into the baskets. The two boys helping
Chris were absolute saints. When Chris ran out of steam later in the
day, these boys practically carried Chris back to his seat with kindness
CeCe tried her hand at batting.
A couple of the Indiana Firebirds cheerleaders, the Flames, stopped
by to meet the athletes. Corey was all smiles as they talked to him
and posed for photos with him.
Claire received her medal for participating. She loved it when they
announced her name over the loudspeaker.
Corey received his medal of participation while everyone clapped.
I snapped this photo of my beautiful family (Tom, Claire, and Jill)
