Rae has starting cheering this year for the 7-8 yr old football team at Mooreville and I have to say that she is very good at it. She has worked really hard, learned the cheers and dance but she found out this last Saturday that cheering is not just fun with friends. The boys had there scrimage football game at Dorsey. The plan was for them to play at 8:30 and then again at 9:40 but due to a team not showing up we didn't play until 9. As soon as that game was over they played their second game. All of that meant that the girls cheering had to cheer for two games back to back. I know that high school girls cheer for longer times than this but this was a bunch of 8 year olds who had never done this before. She was one tired little girl when we left. But she had a great time and did a wonderful job. She gets to cheer with some of her best friends from school. Rae, Lindy and Sianna are three of the tallest and loudest grils on the team. You can hear them over most of the other ones. Some of the cheers they do are new ones that I had never heard before and some are still around from my high school days. Rae was amazed that I knew the words to some of her cheers. I was never a cheerleader in high school but I did get to go to alot of the games and cheer from the stands. There is one cheer that the girls do that makes them giggle everytime they do it. It's "Hey Cheerleader" and in one part of the cheer they have to say "Shake your booty, shake, shake your booty" and everytime they say this they all make the biggest grins on their face.

This is the cheer where they say "Shake your booty" Can you see the grin on their faces?

She's doting the "i" in "Victory"

 These are a great group of girls who have worked really hard to learn their cheers and they all did a great job Saturday. They are a big bunch also and three of the girls were not there. I can't wait for the rest of there games.

I don't have a picture of their teacher Ms. Judy but as soon as I have one I will add it. She is an awesome lady. She is so good with the girls and she makes this fun for them. She always tells them how good they are doing and how proud she is of them and she works just as hard as they do. Her daughter Katelyn has been helping her with the girls, showing them the moves and making sure that they know the words. They have both been wonderful. Thank you Ms Judy an Katelyn for all your hard work.
