Its a Cheer Thing

Amanda made the Cheer Squad this year at the Junior High.

She has always wanted to be a cheerleader. She looks so cute in her little uniform too! A couple weeks ago I took off work early so I could watch her at the pep assembly. Here are a few pics!

Ofcourse then there was the fun of sitting through football
games just to watch the cheerleaders!

But the fun was short-lived. Amanda quit cheer last week...I don't know whether to be upset or to breathe a big sigh of relief! She says that the fact she made it at all was an absolute "miracle" but she had reached her limits emotionally. Amanda had a hard time with the coach putting her down and then the girls would follow suit. Atleast the girl knows her limitations...and we had fun while it lasted! Next up is Volleyball - GO COUGARS!

Some things about Junior High just really suck don't they! Please let Amanda know that all of us think of her as our "greatest" family cheerleader!

Junior high is the epitomy of everything that is nasty, vile, and ugly about teen agers. Most of them go on to become decent teenager in high schools. But during those years...I still hold with my original philosophy--HOMESCHOOL!
