Yep, she did it again.

This girl wrapped up tennis season, then went ahead and made the high school cheer team:

She was so scared for try-outs.

There are some pretty amazing tumblers and dancers who try out.

But that’s what I love about Grace.  She doesn’t let the scariness hinder her.  She practiced and practiced, and worked hard.  And smiled a lot 🙂

She fought the fear.

 And she made it.

Tryouts are always bitter sweet when people have to get cut.

Either it’s you, or it’s some of your best friends.  In this case it was some of her best friends so she was so sad about that.

But she just had her first practice yesterday and she came home glowing like a lightbulb.  She was so excited.

It’s going to be a lot of work, there’s a cheer camp this summer and practices start now into the summer.  They are getting their “moves” ready for football season which will be here before you know it.

But along with all that work they’re sure going to have a good time.

Congrats Grace-Jam!  So excited for you!

  1. How do you balance all your family travels with high school sports like this? My daughter just made her high school cheer team as well, and it looks like we are going to have to leave her home from our family trips,(including possibly picking our son up from his mission) from girls camp and youth conference etc…. this is really stressing me out, they only have a few precious summers at home at this age (and the school year)…. any advice on this balancing act??
