Excuse me While I Brag!

   Hello friends, sorry but I'm going to brag on my kid here: Gloria made varsity cheerleader! Not a normal thing when she's only going to be a tenth grader next year!
    Yep I'm a proud mommy! And for all of you that think cheerleaders are dumb she also makes straight A's oh and ya I WAS a cheerleader too, and I am Very Smart! Just saying.
    I'm proud of all my children, they are all super smart(not bragging just stating a fact all have high IQ's) and have turned out well despite the fact that their parents haven't always made the best choices. 
   So after a grueling four hour tryout session Gloria was starving so her and I went out to eat, she ate a half of pound hamburger, baked potato, salad and then ice cream! This morning before tryouts she had biscuits and gravy, sausage, a bowl of cereal and three fiber cookies. It's not like she had nothing all day.
     I don't know where in that little five foot four and a hundred and three pounds she stores all that food at!
    So in her honor I'm putting these pictures up,some  are not in the best shape.
That's her on the left this is two years ago in compition
Her far right waiting to run on
Her after you can tell she's in pain. 
Her in the air closes, hard to get pictures, move to fast!
8th grade
Her this year up on top!
Her this year in front leading!
     You can tell compition hurt her physically, this was before we knew she had Arthritis. It didn't matter to her how much pain she was in she was determined to finish and not let her team down.
    And now I must go, because my little champ came home after eating that huge meal and fell asleep without any blankets on. Until we meet again....

That is rough she has arthritis my hubby has really severe arthritis with all his cousins, seems to skip to every other generation. He has it really bad in his hips and knees, and his worst off cousin has already had to have a couple finger joints replaced @ 28.

I'm so pleased for you, and for Gloria. You have every reason to be proud of her and I hope she's very proud of herself too. x
