That's when all the 'behind the scenes' work becomes worth it. Congrats to Roo.

That is SO an "Awwwww" moment. Pity there are so few of those left.

Good lord, you done raised that girl right.

:o) Love it!

Spontanaeity is a great thing. Love it!

Oh Janet, I am so happy for you. I know how much I treasure every little chance to still be a part of my kids' lives.

Congrats to Roo and the girls for being in the competition and sticking with it and sticking the routine. Also congrats to you for raising a daughter that still remembers her mom. Love the story and I look forward to reading more about your trip.


Oh, that? Is priceless! I can't even remember the last time mine voluntarily sat in mine.

Janet, did you watch most of the other competitors? My kid's school (and the squad that did not take my daughter because she overthrew her standing back tuck and landed on her knees rather than her feet), won nationals, but I'm not sure if they won just in their division or overall, or what. You know why I DO NOT know this? Yeah, it's because my daughter landed her standing back tuck on her knees. Boy would it have been nice for her to have been on that squad!

I know I've told you this before, but I will repeat myself -- the lessons learned from cheerleading, from nailing the routine, are forever -- regardless of who goes home with the trophy. Jen's team never "placed" but it was a great experience for her. Becca's dance team came home with multiple first place trophies, which felt really great, but the "lessons" from that team were not worth learning...
