Go Upwards!!

Isabel decided to take a year off of dance and try cheer leading this fall.  Upwards cheer leading is a great program and I thought it would be a great experience for her.  So far, she has loved it.  They practice once a week and then cheer for the kids playing flag football on Saturday mornings.  Isabel and her friend, Lillie, use their playground time to practice their cheers most days and I'm super impressed with how much they have learned and how much they have improved already.

Saturday was her first time to cheer at the games and it was a beautiful day that actually felt like fall!!  There is only one cheer leading squad and many flag football teams but they all play on one big field that is divided up into a bunch of little fields. The girls simply did a few cheers at one game and then would move on to the next field to cheer for those players. They loved it and we enjoyed watching them.

She loves her uniform!

The pom poms may be her favorite part!

I'm so thankful for this sweet friendship

I'm not sure Will even noticed that his sister was cheering.  He was way too interested in the flag football games that were going on.  As soon as we got home, he tucked 2 of Josh's socks in his shorts and ran around having his own flag football game!!
