Congratulations Stormie!

The last two weeks have been a little hectic with my Stormie girl. She decided to try out for the high school cheer squad. The odd part, she is the only freshmen girl that tried out. She was very nervous and afraid she would not be good enough. We enlisted the help of my good friend, Sissy, who was a cheerleader for North Texas A&M. She worked faithfully with Stormie for a week and through the weekend. They worked on sharpness, stretches, balance, form, voice, and even made up a new cheer to words the coach at the high school had given them. Thank you Sissy, it paid off! She had me watch the cheers and the school spirit dance so much that I bet I could do them now.
Tryouts were last Monday. When I dropped her off I knew how nervous she was and I was nervous for her, as the mom I also had many butterflies. I walked the track and did a few bleachers so I could kill the time before heading home to make dinner. I knew the clock would never move if I didn't do something. Just after seven that evening she called to tell me she had a ride home and "YES!!" she had made the team!!
She is very excited and looking forward to next year at the high school! Me, well I am excited for her too, but NOT ready for high school, I wish I had my little baby back. The time will go even faster now so be prepared for numerous blogs about my teenage adventures. CONGRATULATIONS STORMIE, we are so proud of you!!!

Congrats Stormie!!! That's so exciting!

...I think it really helps make the transition into High School a lot funner when you are involved in teams like this. :)

Yay Stormie! That is awesome. Kim, I feel like you are a million miles away. We used to talk and see eachother at church, but since I've been put in the YW, I never see you anymore. Hope things are going well for you!
