Q2 Team Spirit Pep Rally

You know it was a great quarter when the hardest day in 3 months consists of worrying if a blog post will be too long – there are so many awesome pictures to post! Though Q2 has come to a close and all cheerleading is over, we wanted to have a post-Q2 pep rally to recognize all the Team Spirit talent! You all really showed us your skill with the KAL and your personalities poured out in the Scavenger Hunt photos. It was neat to see a tiny glimpse into your lives, so thank you for sharing your city, your family, your fluffy pets, your favorite dives, your yarn, and your hearts!

Join us as we shout a big cheer for the T-shirt Scavenger Hunt submissions from Flickr!
