Go! Fight! Win!





Ahhhh-- my little cheerleader -- isn't she sweet! Her cheer/dance class has been so much fun for her. It's a fairly large class with about 12-13 girls ages 4-7. At first, I thought that would be too many girls in the class and she'd feel lost. Happy to report that did not happen -she is enjoying the class so much! There are two teachers and one is a former daycare teacher, so I think she knows how to keep order in the dance room. Bonus - I think it is helping her self-confidence a bit already. And for those of you non-cheerleader types like me -- here's one of the first of the cheerleader mottos she learned -- "Hands on the Hips, Smile on the Lips!" She just got her pom-poms the other day. They are so different than those used back in my high school days -- they are more metallic and stiffer than the other fringy-type ones. Very cool! I have a terrible sense of rhythm -- I really have a difficult time keeping the beat -- so cheerleading was way out of my realm of abilities. I'm so happy that Maddy is having the opportunity to try lots of different sports and activities.

Go team go!! She looks so happy! She is such a cute cheerleader!!!!

I didn't realize that both you and your sister adopted from China. Did you guy's get to go at about the same time? What are the age differences between the girls? Do they live close by? I just think that is so great that they have each other as cousins!!!!

Oh how cute is she!!!! She is precious and I love the look on her face-- she is so beautiful. What a fun thing to be involved in. When I was a kid you only did cheer in high school so how fun that little girls can get involved in that stuff now!!! I plan to put mia in cheer or maybe guymnastics- I think she will enjoy anything that allows her to move and move and move!!!

Cute pics!!

I am glad that she is enjoying her cheer class so much. I know she is wonderful at it.

The pom poms are such much cuter than the ones from back in the day.
