3 Cheers for Sydney
Sydney had her first cheerleading competition today. Back in August she joined the NEO Cubs, a traveling competition group who has teams ranging from 5 years old to collegiate level. Today's competition was close to home, at the Canton Civic Center.
Sydney & I arrived early for warm ups. She was very excited and nervous about preforming in front of the large crowd. Unlike ballet she could see the audience beyond the stage. By 1:00 PM Sydney's fan club had arrived, Daddy, Grandma Franny, Angie, David, Andrew and Drew. When the announcement came over the PA introducing the NEO Cubs Grandma's tears began to flow. Sydney marched out and took her spot on the mat then turned and gave us all a big wave. She was beaming! The music started and the Cubs team did awesome. I was shocked, we have only seen bits and pieces of the routine as she practiced at home. But, out there on the floor she really put on a show. And, to our surprise was promoted to the flier in the mount sequence. We knew someday her tiny size would come in handy! Way to go Sydney! We are all so proud of you.
