Kennedy had some great support there from lots of friends! She had quite a few friends from school come, including her teacher, one of her paras, her vice principal and principal and then of course lots of people were there from her dance studio. They have been long time walkers for Kennedy's friend Jaemen, and they of course supported Kennedy as well. We had some friends who we know through the Army come too, which is awesome!! We are so thankful to be part of such an amazing community with so many people to support Kenn and all people with Down syndrome here in Colorado Springs.
Here are some pictures from our day...
This is Devon, she is the Miss American Jr. Teen Queen for Colorado. She was looking for a team to walk with today and asked Kennedy if she could join ours... of course Kennedy said yes, especially when she saw the pretty crown!! :)
Devon and her sister... they both are going to Florida for nationals in November!! We wish them the very best of luck! :)

Kameron went home with his friends for a little bit and the rest of us are laying around. We're tired!! Thank you, CSDSA for a wonderful day and thank you Manitou Springs Police Department for only giving us a warning on all our cars instead of an actual parking ticket. We appreciate it! ;)
