Mariah is in her second season of cheerleading and she absolutely LOVES it! She really excels in cheerleading, she enjoys going to practice, making new friends, making up new cheers, and of course cheering in front of the crowd.
I was not a cheerleader. It really isn't in my blood, but when Mariah said she wanted to try it (and do it for a second year), we agreed to it, even though it is a huge commitment for us as well (practice three times a week for two hours and games on Saturdays and a big competition).
Mariah has learned so many lessons from cheerleading, like following through on a commitment, self confidence, team spirit, humbling winning, accepting losing, and so much more!
I'm glad that Mariah has found an extracurricular activity that she loves, and little does she know that she is learning so much from it!
