Two weeks ago, we traveled about 400 miles (I think it was that far....about 7 hours) to Springfield, Missouri for the National Homeschool Cross Country Championships. This was the first time for the Spartans to participate in this event. We all met at 9:00 AM to begin the 16 vehicle caravan. Jimmy had worked all night, and he still drove the entire way! I just talked a lot to keep him awake!

The American Family Association filmed the cross country races as well as the other events that were held that weekend. I think the other sports were volleyball and maybe basketball. They were all homeschool national championship games.
