It being 10/10/10 and all, I realized I had the perfect post. There are 10 girls I don't talk to as much as I'd like to. 9 cheerleaders + 1 coach in fact.
A couple years ago, I dedicated the majority of my life to these girls. I spent weekends with these girls, I spent after schools with these girls, sometimes I spent my mornings with these girls, and I loved it.
Remember how we lost one of the letters to CHS?
Remember how the janitor hated us?
Remember when we lost pom poms?
Remember when Chelan sang Welcome, Welcome, Sabbath Morning every time we had early morning practice?
Remember starting practice at 7:14, not 7:15?
Remember measuring our splits by the squares on the floor of the multi-purpose room?
Remember when we put the CHS Decal on the Raymond bus?
Remember stealing all of the pillows and hiding them on the balcony?
Remember how Michelle would always order pizza for all of us?
Remember when Kate picked that lock?
Remember trips to the hotel that the Raymond boys were staying at?
Remember how sore we were the day after we had to fall from standing up and catch ourselves? Ouch..
Remember how at zones the boys from Magrath almost didn't let us sit in our seats and the 10 of us jammed ourselves onto 9 chairs?
Remember when the elevator broke down at LCI? hahah
Remember how hard the hitch was?
Remember when someone from Raymond called out, "Is that all you got?" and we all smiled because our routine was just getting better from there? We sure showed him.
Remember the bruises on Breanne's legs from learning that clapping thing..
Remember how when Anna would come we would quickly start warming up so she'd think we were all stretched out?
Remember when Cheryl taught us the funky chicken cheer?
Remember how amazing Luther was?
Remember when we beat Raymond at a home game and we all pretty much started crying?
Remember doing the Dynamite cheer with the Magrath Cheerleaders?
Remember beating Harry Ainlay and crying about it?
Remember the giant pyramid with the basketball team?
Remember having photoshoots in the other schools?
Remember our adrenaline levels after nailing our performance at Alumni?
Because I sure do. These are the 10 someones who I don't talk to as much as I'd like to, or as much as I used to. I miss cheer. Thanks for making our year just the best ever.
