Rachael had a cross country meet today, so I could actually make it to one. It was at Ballard, which is a huge meet, actually larger than a state meet. It was a tough, hilly course. But, Rachael finished 19th out of over 200 junior high girls. I also had to stop in front of the Ames fire station when I went through town to get a shot of their 9/11 tribute.
