Olivia the Cheerleader

Last week Olivia and her friend Haylee did a cheer clinic with one of the local high schools. They learned (tried to learn) this dance and then they performed it at the basketball half time. They were so cute! Here they are doing the cheer.

Here they are before they performed.

Here is their dance.

One of my friends I went through treatment with, Shari, owns a cheer gym here in town and Olivia and Haylee are going to start going to a cheer class. In April they form teams and if Olivia enjoys the class we will put her on a cheer team. She enjoys her tap class now and is always talking about gymnastics so hopefully this will be a good combination of the two. The do a lot of stuff in the community such as parades and they were at relay for life and then they do a few competitions in the fall in the Denver area. I think she is really going to love it.

Payton started with Michelle and then Shari joined on as one of the coaches. Payton LOVED cheer! Unfortunately her grades starting slipping and we decided a 2nd grader didn't need to be dealing with D's and F's because of cheerleading. Let me suggest taking a large bottle of Excedrin with you to cheer competitions. It's 8 joy filled hours of screaming girls!

She looks like a natural out there! Taking after the old lady, I guess.
