There's one huge awesome thing that happened last week [teaser! sorry!] but I can't talk about it for another week or two, so hang onto your hats until then. (I know, that's so cruel! But it's super happy, and NO: it doesn't involve moving or babies. :-P) Suffice it to say, a loved one FINALLY got the BIGGEST answer to prayer, so join me in nebulous rejoicing!!! :-D
In more concrete celebratory news, Annelise entered a poster contest about a month ago for the National Weather Service Severe Weather Awareness Week. They were challenged to pick a severe weather event and make an awareness poster for it. She was adamant about doing this extracurricular project!!! She picked floods and totally ran with it. She worked on her poster for several days:
Last weekend was all about cheer, both my rec program and all star. [Dedicated all star tryout post tomorrow!] We had *TWO* Cheertators' daughters' bday parties! (My cheer committee calls ourselves the Cheertators, and we call our kids the Tator Tots! HA!!! :-D) Can you believe two Tots have the exact same bday?! One had a sleepover:
[This may be my fave pic of half of us EVER! :-D]
Yes, Annelise's bday is in just two weeks. No, we don't have a thing planned. This weekend's mission...
We ran our first walk-up registration & uniform fitting event all day Saturday, and 3 of my new girls came to get fitted - they are SOOOO enthusiastic! It will be so good to have their fresh energy this fall. (And super tall big sis is going to be one of my assistant helpers. :-))
Finally, our cheer program got published, again! This time talking about us donating 500 surplus cheer uniforms to a charity cheer organization when I updated the design last year. I was so happily shocked when I opened up the magazine out of our mailbox & saw my own face! :-D Here's the online version. :-)
Coming next: all star cheer tryout and a God lesson through Zumba...
