I have so many fun memories of cheering for youth football and it wasn't just about football. We went to cheer competitions and we were the best of the best. We always placed and a few times, we won! I remember one particular competition, I was the only one who could do the side to side splits instead of the front/back splits. So, at the end of our cheer, I did a dive roll into the splits, IN THE MUD! It was cold and rainy that day, I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember our parents were upset because we were facing away from them and they couldn't see us. I believe that is one did pretty good at.
We had slumber parties at the rec center, us girls were always joined at the hip. I remember once Lori's parents took me, her and Kim to Burger King or somewhere after a game to get lunch. Lori is blond headed, Kim is red headed and I'm a brunette. Someone asked us if we were sisters and that just cracked us up thinking we were sisters. Good times........ I will always cherish this time in my life.
