Lord have mercy, the 8th grader made high school JV cheerleader tonight. It has been a try-out week filled with anxiety and lots of practice once she arrived home from two hours of work at the high school. Chants, a dance routine, tumbling… it's all part of the cheerocracy. Needless to say, she's over the moon, and one of only two freshman to make the squad. I didn't get a pic of her next to the board with her number on it, mainly because she was bouncing around squealing in delight. So proud of her and her hard work, willing to put herself out there and risk failing for something she really wants. Job well done!
