Every year our local high school, Briar Woods, holds a cheer camp for kids 6 and up. On a Saturday afternoon, the kids spend 2.5 hours with the squad learning cheers and dance moves then the following Friday night, the kids have a pizza dinner with the squad and get to cheer with them on the sidelines of the first quarter of the football game. Kaitlyn was so excited for this fun opportunity, but unfortunately, the Saturday of camp, she was sick. We went to the school anyway and she watched the girls practice from afar and I recorded the cheers to practice at home. We were practicing our spelling all week: F-A-L-C-O-N-S!
When I returned for the game, she was already on the sidelines donning her bright pink shirt and navy blue bows (the girls got to keep both as part of the camp fee). This was the school's "Pink" game in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
She was nervous and a little timid...she's never liked crowds, especially when all eyes are on her. I told her, only our eyes are on her because everyone else is looking at their own kid. :) Luckily, her bestie, Emma, was right by her side!
She did great and had a wonderful time! Enjoy the pics and videos...
