This is my "tiny" cheerleader, Macie. As I look at this snapshot, I get tears in my eyes. She looks so small on this big stage. I actually was beginning to cry, as she was getting ready. I knew she was not feeling well, and she was a little more anxious that day. Right before she is about to perform, she looks out for me. Once she sees where I am, she bends down,(she and I exchange the "thumbs up" sign) and gets ready for the music to begin. (I love her little fists!)
My girls had a cheer competition this past weekend. This was the first time that we attended this venue. So far, I think this was my favorite competition. Right before the girls were to perform, they walked down the "red" carpet, (trust me it was red!), and up the stairs onto this big stage. Then there is an emcee, and even a DJ. There is a section on the stage that is called the lounge! After the teams perform, they receive their scores on the spot. If you receive the highest score you get to go to the lounge and sit on these red sofas. You will never leave, unless another team outscores you. Fortunately, Macie's Tiny Team never had an opportunity to see the "red" couch. I do not think she would understand, if she was made to leave, if another team beat their score! LOL Macie is too young to fully understand the scoring process. She is only five, but she loves to perform!
Unfortunately, I do not have any great shots of my daughter Gabriela! Macie's team has thirteen girls, and Gabi's team has like 100! LOL It is a rather large team, and impossible to keep up with her. The team she is on this year, is outstanding!! (They received first place at this competition!!) They are really hard to beat! I have missed two of her competitions, due to scheduling conflicts this year. This makes me sad, but she knew that although, I was not physically with her, I am her biggest cheerleader!
Have a fabulous one,
