I know I say this all the time, but it's been a BUSY week!

Liv has had cheerleading practice three nights a week for the past several weeks getting ready for competition.

So we've been running her around to practices, and she's been working so hard........
and STILL managed to get straight A's!

Saturday, the girls cheered at the "Superbowl" game for the football team.
We drove an hour to the game, stood in the rain and wind for 2 hours and the poor guys lost.
It was so sad to see all those football players walking dejectedly off the field after getting to the championship game.

Saturday night Olivia had a "cheer"party, and all the girls got together and the coaches and a few of us moms put their hair up and curled it in little teeny pink rollers (remember those? OUCH!!) with about a pound of gel and hairspray per girl - in anticipation of competition Sunday.

They all wore bandannas over their hair to sleep in.

Aren't they CUTE????

Today, we got up and drove to University of Maryland - Cole Field House - for competition.

All the little Lancers, waiting for their turn!

On deck and practicing....Liv is a base - she's the one holding that girl up!


Those girls were PERFECT!!!!

I cried.

Sorry for the blurriness - it's hard to get good action shots - they move so fast!

After all divisions compete, they bring them all onto the floor and play dance songs while they tally the scores so the girls can blow off steam - This was a sight to see!!!

Dancing away...

And the third place award for the 8-10 division????

I was amazed at how much I got into this!! I made signs and bead shakers and I turned into one of those loud obnoxious moms.

But it was GREAT!!

I was so proud of Liv - she worked so hard, and she was PERFECT.
