Halle the Cheerleader

Halle has always been our one to want her hair fixed and wear ribbons and bows. She's also always been a muscly, limber, little thing. We've tried dance, karate, and gymnastics none of which have been the perfect fit for our active little Halle. I think we may have found it with cheer though. This is Halle's first year and she is absolutely loving it. I have to admit, I am finding it very addicting and can't wait for her to grow and develop her talent in it.



Yesterday was her very first performance, they were the half time show for the JV Skyline basketball game. If cheer isn't your thing you don't have to watch long to see her in the video. She's on the front row, third from the right and her group performs first. However, if you have the time and patience watch the whole video, its really quite impressive and there are some adorable little teeny tiny ones as well as some very talented older girls. (Sorry about the shaky filming, I was trying to watch and film at the same time and didn't do very well.)

(I don't know what's up with this video. I'll keep trying.)

Oh my goodness....little town me has never seen so many little cheerleaders all in one room! I can't believe how many girls were there! No wonder it is such a huge honor to be a part of a cheerleading squad.

Halle really knew what was going on. I could tell. Her musical ability from her mom (or maybe from Guitar Hero)...okay, nope, it's from her mom (and Dad) really shined through. She was ON THE BEAT. Did you notice that? I did...

Anyway, I thought Halle was very good....very good. I hope she likes it. I think I'm into this and would love to watch her progress. If not, trampoline backflips from her mom will have to do.

Look how GOOD she is!!! I love stuff like this-- it makes me kind of sad I don't have a girl. I'll just have to watch your videos and live vicariously through you for a minute. Pretty soon Halle will be doing those flips and handsprings, too! Sweet!

This made me happy...as a former cheerleader who still longs for the day when my legs were that limber--and that skinny.

And are those uniforms black and pink? FANTASTIC!!!!!

p.s. That particular version of "Let The Sunshine In" is sung by Robert Pattinson's sister. Kid you not. And how cheesy is it that I know this random information????
