Evie's Cheer Competition

Was so much fun.  She did so well we were all so proud of her.  She had so much fun.  The only thing that wasn't cool was having to get up at 4am to make it there by 6:30am.  We had to drive an hour and a half to get to it, and because of where it was and where we live there was an hour time change between the two.  Unfortunately, they were an hour ahead of us!  The teams practice time started at 8 (7 our time) and the competition started at 9!  Plus, the coach wanted everyone there 30 minutes early just to make sure they all made it on time!

She cried a couple times at the practice, but i think she was just tired.  They folded her socks down and she said she was cold.  All the girls were away from the parents and she wanted me to stay with her.  Daddy and I took turns staying with her until the competition started.  Then she seemed fine.  She is also the youngest on the team and didn't really know any of the girls.

So did so good and remembered all her moves.  It was awesome.  Half way through another girl blocked my view of her so I missed a little of her in the video.  Next time I will definitely make sure to ask her coach to put smaller girls in front or stagger them more so parents can see each child!

Her team took third place out of ten teams.  All the girls got trophies, but only the teams that placed got ribbons.  We also bought her some flowers.  So she was super excited.  Nana and Papa bought her a cheer shirt and we got her a water bottle to keep special for practices!  Of coarse she wants to continue cheer now!  As well as karate and dance lessons!  I'm gonna have to find a job to pay for all the stuff she wants to do!  Just kidding!  Plus, until she is older it will only be one thing at a time.  We believe kids need time to be kids!
