The world according to Andrea

Cheerleader Turned Football Player

on September 8, 2009

9-7-09 006I was so excited that Tessa was finally old enough to participate in the annual Viking “mini-cheer” clinic this year.  The little girls get to learn some cheers with the big girls and then get to perform during the half time of a football game.  Because I’m a faculty member, they do it for just $6!  She got a cute shirt, shorts, and pom poms.  She was very excited to go cheer, as you can see in this picture taken before the game had started.

When it came time, she stepped out onto the track to do a few cheers.  We soon regretted the cotton candy that she ate during that first half of the game when she began attacking her big cheerleader.  She started with an innocent “hug” and just seemed delighted to see her, but then she got a bit obsessive and the hugs turned to “tackles”.  Then, the other little girls noticed the fun that Tessa was having and decided to join in the fun.  They dog-piled this poor cheerleader almost the entire time!

This picture really doesn’t do it justice, really.  We decided that Tessa will probably enjoy contact sports when she gets older.
