Today my little angel was at the Wild West Cheer Competition! Her team was awesome! My daughter is Tielena, on the right, her BFF Haley on the left. The competition was tough, there were a lot of teams there, and her team out of 6 on her level won 2nd place, trophy, medal, pin and all! In Jan her team won 2nd at a bigger competition down in Little Rock, AR. They are working their butts off to be awesome, positive, great students, great friends and great roll models. Their positivity and smiles are enough to brighten every day like a million suns.
When you insert a kid into this, very expensive, sport, it changes their lives. They now have a new set of friends that are striving to be better, striving to be happy and positive, dancing, competitive and working toward a goal!
Very expensive. I must say that the bulk of expendable income goes into this sport. Last year the average cost of keeping her in uniform, classes, competition fees, travel, hotel rooms, food and sneakers, ran about $600/Mo. I could choose to only do competitions close to home, maybe save $200 a month, but this would leave her out of the teamwork she has put so much effort into. I bite the bullet and cut costs in other places.
She is so worth it!
