Ready to fly

Abby Crutcher, Alison Aggen and Sarah Valenzuela of First Baptist Pre-school, wait to release their balloons during the kick-off of "Week of the Young Child" at the Limestone County Courthouse.

Local day cares and parents brought their children to the event. The group marched from Big Spring Memorial Park to the courthouse where David Seibert, Limestone commission chairman, read a proclamation before the balloon release.

The local agency Childcare Education Resources, Inc. sponsored the march and the annual celebration is conducted across the United States.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children created the event to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families, and to recognize childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
