Katie tried out for Jr. High cheerleader today....and MADE the squad! I am so proud of her!!!! She's been working so hard. It's really a joy to see her enjoying something so much. I cheered for 6 years, and I had always hoped that she would show an interest in it. BUT....for the longest (until this summer), she showed absolutely NO interest in it. She was in LOVE with softball. Cheering was for girls, and she proudly considered herself a tomboy. :) This summer her BFF, Bailey, talked her into going to a mini-cheer camp at the high school. She came back from the first day smiling from ear to ear and I knew that she had been sucked in. ;) They tried out this afternoon, and this evening we found out that she made it. I'm really proud of her because 2/3 of the score is by visiting judges, and 1/3 of the score is teacher evaluations. They really stress that the girls should be "leaders" in the classroom and on the field. So it truly is a V-I-C-T-O-R-Y all the way around! :)
Love you, baby girl!!!!!
