Cheer

I am always anxious with new things for my kids. Fortunately, Emily has grown up a lot and she seems willing and excited to tackle new adventures. I have come to realize her stregnths and try to move forward with those.

So, when she said she wanted to do Cheerleading, I was hesitant. Let me start off by saying Cheer is a HUGE commitment. It's $$$. They start in the summer. There's been a full day camp (on a Sunday) and a pep rally (on a Sunday) and now the season is about to "officially" start, she'll continued practices 2x a week and then games on the weekends (at 8 AM! 

But I'm really impressed with the Cheer standards. This is no frilly, dancy, not really serious thing. This is a sport. And everyone is to treat it like a sport ---- Cheer has to follow the same standards as the football team. Three tardies and  you're out!  

And best of all, Emily seems to like it!!! Yeah!!
