Well football is over as well as cheer. Darians team may not have won their play off game but the girls did well at cheer championships. "We have spirit yes we do we have spirit how about you"

Yes they had a lot of fun learning new cheers and a little dance too.

Part of cheer is stunts. Ayanna got to be a flier, she has the E and Kendra is a side base on the S.

In all this learning of stunts, dance, and cheers there are also formations.

Just a couple more then I am done.
First you win spirit....

Then you win the all-around dance

I'm so proud of my girls Mom the coach and Kendra who made Varsity for next year and Ayanna the Flier

Ocean Shores!!!!!

We finally got away on a family vacation! We went with my parents down to Ocean Shores... we had four days of just family and fun!!

The North Jetty is really cool... the girls hadfun playing in the water, while the boys climbed the rocks.... Ayanna bought a mini kite... she was having a hard time getting it in the air... but once it took off it was flying high!!

Bumper car and Fast tracks.... it was fun watching the kids on the bumper cars but it was even funnier watching my husband and my dad competing for top spot on the track.... while Leonard has a serious look of determination on his face, my dad was perma grin from ear to ear! Not sure who won, but it was them having a great time that mattered!

Had to have some education on our trip...... We took the kids to the interprative center... it was all about wildlife, the ocean animals, historical information in Grays Habor.... it was alot of fun and very interesting....

I was sad to come home, but glad to be sleeping on my own bed... It has been hard after having four days off to get back into the groove of everyday life!!
