Lael’s cheerleading team is going to Cheer Camp at UA. I think I might be more excited about it than she is! I remember how much fun I had when I went, but of course she doesn’t want to hear about that!! Ha!! Anyway, I […]
Lael was so excited when I picked her up at Beez tonight. She wanted to show me a great tumbling pass she had mastered. It was a Front Walkover – Roundoff – Backhandspring – Backhandspring – BackTuck. She insisted that I get out my camera […]
Wilderness at the Smokies is a wonderful place for a short vacation. We had another cheerleading competition at the convention center across the street from the resort like last year. This is one competiton that Caeden doesn’t complain about going to! We left around 2:00 Friday so that the twins would hopefully have some time to play at the water park before it closed for the night. We made it there in plenty of time, so we thought! But, it took almost an hour to check in – Grrrrrr! So, they ended up with almost an hour to play.
Here are some of the girls from Lael’s team before they went in to perform.
It’s time for another cheer competition. This one was in Birmingham. Birmingham is easy because we can stay with my parents. Also, we know where we are going around town, so no need to consult the GPS! Unless of course we wanted to find some […]
Every Friday before a competition they hold a Show Day at Tumblebeez. This is for all of the friends and family who will not be able to travel to the actual competition. It also gives the girls another opportunity to perform in front of a crowd. It’s also a great chance to take pictures, because I can’t always get close enough to the stage at the competitons. But, the lighting was not great at the gym, so only a handful of the pictures I took turned out ok.
After Lael’s team was finished in Nashville at the cheerleading competition we decided to stop at the Nashville Flea Market before heading home. I love flea markets. I hardly ever buy anything, but I love to browse around and window shop. This flea market was […]
Instead of passing out on the sofa after eating Thanksgiving dinner, we went outside to try out some new cheerleading skills led by Myrisa, Maygan and Allie. Chace, Madeline, Mallory and Lael, the amateurs, were fast learners! There was plenty of other fun to be […]
We have wrapped up the cheerleading season now. I am so glad that Lael wanted to do this. I enjoyed watching them cheer! We had our end of the year party at Pizza Inn, a favorite among many of the families. It’s a great place for parties too, because of the buffet! After all the girls finished eating, the coaches gave out the medals and picture frames for each girl. Lael couldn’t part with her ice cream cone for the ‘ceremony’ though so I have a fabulous picture of her accepting her stuff with her tongue hanging out! Lovely!
Each year St. John’s hosts a family fun day. Since we don’t attend St. Johns, we have never been. They go all out to make this a spectacular event though! There are tons of inflateables, booth games, food, face painting etc. Think of any fun […]
Watching these girls cheer has been so fun! Some of them like Lael really take it seriously, when she is yelling for the crowd to get on their feet and cheer she really expects the entire stadium to be up and screaming! I can just […]
