Go Abby!!

Abby has wanted to give cheerleading a try for a long time. Now she's got her chance! Last Saturday was her first game and she LOVED it!! So far, I am loving the organization that puts this program together! It is a Christian organization which means that at each practice they have a devotional/prayer time as well as prayer before the games. I love it! It is basically for fun and not meant to be competitive at all! I love that for this being our first time with a new sport! Very encouraging! If you know Abby you know that she does not like for people to see her. She is always afraid she will mess up or of what people will think of her. I think this is going to be a great confidence building experience for her.

I loved how they introduced all of the girls! You can't really tell, but there was a fog machine there too! So cute!
Their first time in front of the crowd.

I am so glad for Abby to be the one doing something she enjoys! For so long she was carted around to all of Ben's things. Now it's her turn and she is loving it!!

She looks like she's having fun!Garrett's playing basketball with Upward this year. His first game is on Saturday. My niece Kylee is also playing and my other niece Maddy is cheering. It's such a great organization! It's funny that your colors this year are blue & orange because rumor has it those will be making their way here next year (we're white & green this year) which is a huge deal in our area. Those are the school colors of Boise State University which is a pretty big deal around here. :)

Upward is a fantastic organization! Kyle played his first year of basketball through Upward. My cousin in NC plays soccer through them. Abby looks like she is having such a good time!

Abby is doing a great job!! Love the pictures! They started Upward at our church this year!! Alissa didn't do it, but we are thinking about maybe the soccer. Basketball ran into Dalton's wrestling. We'll see!!!
Love reading your blogs, Jamie!
