You are in the right place- don't worry. This is my art blog, but I often ramble about my love of sparkle and cheerleading. Right now, it's 'bout to be a cheer post. Ready? Ok! (ummmm...sorry, had to)
I am late on posting this...but I gotta do it. This past Thursday was my last night coaching my JV cheerleaders...and...well, it was truly bittersweet. I have had a great season with this team, and though I am excited about having more free time...
...wait...I am still coaching my middle school team for another month...uh, but...there will still be just a little more free time...
I am going to miss this group of girls. We really had a great season. My approach to coaching my JV's is that they should have the chance to transition into being a high school student, have a life (me, too!), build skills for varsity, learn time management, learn to be a part of a team, do a great job on sidelines with their cheers, chants and stunts...and have fun.
I think we did all of those things this season.
So, yeah, it was bittersweet. We took some team pictures and ate together at the mall before our game. They seemed to like the team shirts that I made them, and they did a great job cheering at their last game.
I could not be more proud.
And...of course someone left their poms, so that gives me an excuse to get them all together again soon!
