A Little Bit of Cheer

Hello all -- I didn't fall off the face of the earth,
I'm just in a slow blogging mode.

But, I wanted to share a little cheer with you all.
Last Friday night, my granddaughter, Janie Boo (kindergarten)
got to cheer at a high school football game!
She was so excited!  
Janie cheered the entire 1st Quarter and
while some of the kindergartners stood around
wondering when to cheer, not Janie.  
She cheered the entire time and even harder when a touchdown occurred.
Sadly, most of the touchdowns were made by the opposing team!  

Maddy participated in a Thunderette dance routine
at halftime that was pretty cool and was over very fast!
Dancers really have to move and get off the field in a hurry.

Even though Janie kind of wanted a ring-pop, popcorn, cotton candy or Gatorade --
 I suggested she wait ( I hate sticky messes), 
so promised 
 ice cream after the game.  
I also may have reminded Janie that 
ring-pops cause cavities and are sticky, messy and icky.
Janie agreed and then informed a 
couple of 9 or 10 year old girls
 who did have ring-pops that those things were really bad for them 
and maybe they should throw them away.
The girls looked a little puzzled by such a wise-beyond-her-years
5 year old and smiled at her!

The real cheerleaders

And yes, we did stop and get ice cream and french fries
after the game -- gotta have a few treats, right!

Friday Night Lights 2015  -- we are there!
