i love how people share their 'throwback' pictures on instagram on thursdays. in honor of that, i figured i'd go ahead and occasionally share a throwback picture here. and maybe a little story.
today, i invite you into the world of high school. my high school senior year: 1998-99. i was co-captain of the cheerleading squad.
here's the evidence:
cheering was so. much. fun. seriously, i had a blast.
we danced, we hollered (holler!), and we got the crowd going.
what do you do to a raider you meet?
you get down on the floor, you can't pray on your feet!
ask a mighty raider for his mercy to give,
and maybe, just maybe...
he'll let you live!
(oh yeah. i went there.)
my co-captain, tia, and i were best buds (and we're still really close). we did a uca camp for the whole squad and tia and i were named all-stars that year. we had a wonderful opportunity to go to australia and participate in an easter parade at the (then) newly built (and still being constructed) olympic park in sydney. (remember the olympics were held there in 2000?)
i'll share more photos of that trip on another thursday. i figure the photo above of me in my football cheering uniform is enough embarrassment for one day. (and don't you worry...there's plenty of embarrassment in my mom's photo collection!)
