GO, Seahawks, GO!

Before I get too far into this post, I just want to make it clear that we are NOT referring to the NFL Seahawks in this video... This cheer is for a high school in our area. Funny story: Emily came pouting over to me after the first day of cheer camp and said she didn't want to go back the next day because she didn't want to be a stinkin' Seahawk. She wanted to be a Steeler girl (her daddy has trained her well, eh?). After I set the record straight that THESE Seahawks were for Grandma Marlee's work, NOT the football team we see on TV, she was beyond excited to go back for days two and three. Her next pouting moment came when she found out cheer camp was only three days long... ha ha!

Alright, onto the video of the performance yesterday. Bear in mind this is after only three days, so I don't think she did too badly when you take that into consideration. And forgive the camera-person's crappy filming. She was also trying to take still photos, AND wrestle a certain two-year-old little boy to the floor one-handed lest he RUN OFF! (Don't forget to pause the music player)


Sadly, Em's camera just isn't good with zooming in (everything was BLURRRRRRRRRRY! and I still haven't figured out what I want to buy to replace MY camera, which broke a few months ago) so I have no still-frame pictures to share. An acquantance was super sweet to take a few pictures of Emily, which she said she would email me last night, but my email account has selected a few choice people who's emails don't make it through (Jodi, for one. My auntie's emails if she includes pictures, and I'm guessing that's what happened to Jamie's email with pictures as well). So, if I ever end up with versions of those, I will be sure to post them up, but for now, you'll have to make do with just the video.

(PS Remember, I'm guest blogging again today over at The Daily Grind)

Aha! I BEAT Jodi once again!!! YAY! Neener, neener, neener, Jodi!

Emily's cute! That was so cute about 1 min. into the video, everyone else had moved off, but no, there she was still holding her arms up! She'll be an awesome cheerleader! Beware, it costs lots of bucks for your kid to be a cheerleader--start saving now. LOL!

I, too, am NOT a Seahawks fan...but I like the NFL team. It's the team that Em was cheering for that I don't like! Well, that's not entirely true. My cousin went there and was the quaterback of the football team so my freshman year I was caught, by you, cheering for the rival school...but only when Brian did well! So I guess I can cheer for Emily, not the Seahawks... Go Em!!

Great job! Now when she's older, you can show her this and say, Yes, you were a real cheerleader. LOL - thanks for sharing...

Jodi said...

Emily did a great job! She looks like she is enjoying herself. Hooray Emily!

(On a side note...don'tcha just love it when a herd of kids goes stampeding right in front of your camera? Stomp, stomp, stomp!)

Glad we got that e-mail thing cleared up. :0)
