Young Champions 2012

Every year my church puts on a program as an outreach to the community called "Young Champions". It's a track and field clinic that's designed to teach kids about teamwork and share the love of God. I was SO excited that Emersyn was old enough this year. They have a preschool category for kids that are 3 1/2 or older. I helped with the preschool registration and it was a blast. I hope to get more involved next year. It was just such a great event! 

Here are some pictures from the past four nights! 

So proud of my girl!!  

Enjoying some snacks while sister plays. 


Coach Everett! 

Got his workout clothes on, ready to shoot some hoops! 

We got the kids new shoes (that they needed very much) the night before Young Champions started. They were SO cute! 

My strong man. He hung here for probably ten seconds totally on his own. 

Ems and one of her besties, Stella.

Ems and Ellie, so proud of themselves! 

Her first medal! 

The last night they did a full on opening ceremonies for the kids. The preschool led the way. SO cute!!! They had the opening ceremonies music from the Olympic and everything. 

Watching the kids

Go Emmy go!

Didn't quite get the concept of hurdles...maybe next year! :) 

I'm so thankful to belong to a church that does things with excellence. It was a great event!
