The Cheerios with their counterpart Senior Varsity team! Everyone snuggled in for a big family picture! I've said it before and I'll say it again: ad.or.ab.le.
The Cheerios have their first official event this weekend. Are we ready? I'm not quite sure. They were asked... at the last minute... to fill in for another squad and cheer for a visiting basketball team at a local prestigious tournament. It's tradition that if the team arrives without their own cheerleaders in tow, a local squad cheers them on for the weekend.
I'm a little overwhelmed organizing rides, getting them excused from classes on Friday afternoon (they are, as you can imagine, thrilled with that idea) and I seem to be answering the same questions over and over again... but at this point, they are as prepared as they're going to get and this control freak will have to let go, less I become a little Sue Sylvester on y'all.
So now you know where I'll be for the next three days. If you want to check in, the BRIT website will have live streaming video of the games and the Cheerios will cheer at 10:00 a.m. CST on Saturday... maybe you'll catch a glimpse of them there. There is a big cheerleading competition right after the game - at noon - we aren't in it, but we'll be there cheering on the other teams (and scoping out the competition for the rest of the season ;)
