Cheerleading Tryouts

After a long week of practicing the tryout cheer and dance for 4 to 5 hours a night, Brooke had her tryouts today after school. As per tradition of last year, Robin & Kenzie and Brooke & I went to Pizza Hut for dinner and to wait for the results to be posted at the school. Cassie and her mom and some of Robin's friends joined us at Pizza Hut this year. I took this before picture because we weren't sure if there would be much smiling after seeing who did and didn't make the squad...


At about 6:45pm we headed up to the school to find out the results...


This was the reaction...
Yep, All 3 of the girls made the squad again!!!!! Brooke was #11, Kenzie #3, Cassie #17. I let them out at the sidewalk, I could hear their screams of joy before I ever got out of the van! We are SO proud of your hard work girls!

There was a little drama as one of this years cheerleaders didn't make it and someone else made it in her place...I felt SO bad for her that I was in tears trying to console her. The girls stayed for over an hour congratulating the girls that made the squad and hugging and consoling those that didn't. It was a very emotional evening but for us it ended well, I feel for those moms that are sitting at home right now holding their crying daughters :-(

Way to go baby girl!!
