Home Sweet Home

We came home last night from our trip to Vegas. It was SO fun!! The girls performed on Monday and did an awesome job. We are so proud of them. We were up against nine other teams. I have to say that all of the cheer squads there were the best of the best. We went up last in our division because we were the defending champions and the girls pulled it off. All the stunts went up and all the tumbling passes were complete. The awards ceremony is always the hardest. When it came to our division, all the girls locked arms with their heads down and the coaching staff just as nervous. After a very long season of working hard on this routine and tweaking it to perfection, it all paid off because the we took first place and still hold the champion title for our division!!!! YEAH!!! It was a sweet victory. Tears of joy and sadness were shared by the whole team because although we won, this was the very last competition that the girls would have as a team. And what a way to end the season!!! Some of these girls have been together since they were 8 years old and now they are 12 and 13. So yes, we had an exciting weekend but it's always nice to be home sweet home!!!
