Back in mid November my nieces had a cheer competition.
Their squad is excellent and in previous years, won first place at all of their competitions.
This year has been a little different.
Squads come from all over,
but there is one group of girls in the next town over that has been beating them this year.
awwww yes, the girls are finishing second for the first time in years.
They finished second at this competition, qualified to go to Florida to compete, but they were not happy.
I thought they were awesome...
Lorelei is so easy to spot with her red hair, I can never find Addie.
I learned the lingo.
Addie is third from the right on the bottom, Lorelei up in the air, second from the left.
they are best buddies.
Maddie came to watch, at 4 years old she never left her chair, she is such a good girl.
She loves to dance, and watch her cousins cheer.
Maybe 1968, I would have been 10, but really, I have no idea!
- don't say cheerleaders aren't athletes until you've been one -
