Spirit Squads And Happy Daughters

My daughter is on her elementary school spirit squad this year, as I have mentioned before, and she loves watching anything and everything related to cheerleading like the video below. Watching her reminds me so much of when I was in high school and was on the Drill Team (I know--not as glamorous and prestige as cheerleading, but I still had fun!). I remember when I was a freshman and I went to the first high school football game of my high school life. It was so exciting to me hanging out with my friends and smiling at the cute guys, LOL. I thought I was sooooo cool. Then at half time the Drill Team marched out and performed. I was so impressed and decided right then that my goal would be to get on that Drill team. And I did. I even became captain (yes, that is the sound of me tooting my own horn, hehe). I learned a lot about myself by setting that goal and not giving up until I achieved it. I also learned so much about being a leader and about working together with others to achieve something. And of course I learned how amazing friendships can be. So I love watching my daughter these days as she smiles and laughs with her spirit squad. I am anxiously awaiting an upcoming performance they will be doing at school, because proud mom wants to videotape it and upload the video on SportsVids for our family and friends to watch. It is a great site to watch favorite sports videos that family members upload of their kids, and online sports videos that others have uploaded of professional sporting events. You may want to check it out if you have some sports related videos of your kids to share with family and friends.
