The Cheerleader

Hey, is anyone still out there??? Where the heck does time go? It's hard to believe it has been over a month since I have been on here. I have thought about posting, but it doesn't seem like I've had anything interesting to say. I still don't, --so I am going to post some pictures. I still haven't posted Christmas pix, but don't know if its too late now or not--being a month after the holiday. Does anyone know the blogging etiquette on that?? Let me know. I'm going to try and be a better blogger--really I am.... I have even thought about having a picture of the day, just to change it up more frequently.

This past month we have been going to watch Maren cheer during the 5th grade basketball games. I have really enjoyed them. The games have been pretty exciting too. The game this past Wednesday, against Hutsonville,was a real nail-biter. The Cubs had been ahead by about 10 pts. the entire game, but the opposing team had caught up, close to the end and Marshall ended up winning by one freethrow shot at the end. Pretty Exciting for 5th grade basketball! The players and cheerleaders have been doing an excellent job.

The only problem has been at home. Maren no longer walks around the house, she hops and jumps around. She is constantly practicing cheering and doing ALL the motions that go along. I also think she has forgotten what her "inside voice" sounds like. Alot of times,when carrying on normal conversations with here we now have to tell her she is talking really LOUD !! She came home from Darla's yesterday, and was doing a cheer that Nana (Darlene) had taught her. Thanks Mom. -I didn't know they had cheerleading back in the early 1900's. :) Just kidding! :)

Anyway here are the pictures. There are a couple of Michael (Darla's son) too. He plays sixth grade basketball, and sometimes has games right after Maren's.

Those are great! And talk about WAY cooler uniforms than I remember our teams having in 5th grade. Looks like Maren's having a blast.

What does that spell??


Whooh! Hooh!
(and I'm putting my hands in the air and moving my fingers like snowflakes because that's what cheerleaders do)
