Today Ava and I went to watch my niece Alyssa cheer for a basketball game today. It was a win-win because Ava has a few friends who are on the same cheerleading squad as my niece. This Cheerleading/basketball program is area wide and not based on schools. So, Ava was excited to see some of her best friends too. While there I even saw a good friend that I hadn't seen in quite some time and it was nice catching up a little bit on our lives.
Ava enjoyed watching her cousin and friends cheer and I could tell she was wanting to be up there doing her thing. She usually cheers for JFL, but I might sign her up next year for Upwards as well to cheer during the basketball season.
Austin was more interested in watching the basketball game, of course.
The cheerleaders taking a break during half-time. The girl 3rd from the left is my niece Alyssa. The 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th girl in the row are friends of Ava's and they are all in the same Girl Scouts troop as well. So that was fun getting to watch them.
Then, tonight I watched some football playoff games and the teams I wanted to win today did. I like Peyton Manning and if the Broncos would have won I wouldn't have really minded but I wanted to see the Ravens win just a little bit more. So, I was stoked when they won. Being a Chicago Bears fan, I wanted the Packers to lose their game more than any other team in the playoffs. LOL I am not a San Francisco fan typically, but I was tonight. So, my day was definitely made when the Niners beat the Packers. :)
Now for tomorrows games. Hoping the Texans can find a way to pull out a win against New England and the Falcons can beat the Seahawks. Might be wishful thinking but I won't complain too much since the Packers did lose! :)
