Holy CRAP! Cheerleading should have it's own HMO!! Great shots!

Lilacspecs said...

Wow. Yet another reason I want all boys. Even if they decide to cheerlead, they stay on the ground.

Theresa said...

The reason is there
Beautiful, high in the air
Proud mama can share.

Karen said...

How do kids even get into that? I mean, do they wake up one morning and say "Mom, I want to fly?"

Ashlie- MommyCosm said...

WOW!
I'm sooo not looking forward to this when my daughter gets older. She's only 6 and is already in love with cheerleaders. Eeek!

Mom24 said...

Wow! That's awesome. My kids are the opposite...all of them. They would be terrified to leave the ground. Sometimes I wonder what I did wrong.

LceeL said...

My goodness. Those girls look none to steady up there. Can't Roo do her cheers from the ground?

Simply Jenn said...

Love the poem! But what the heck is with the other girl's tuck? Roo looks awesome!

Patsy said...

Great shot is right. And I soooo understand the gray hair haiku. I have a few for similar reasons. That was a great stunt though, talented girls. (I was glad to see the spotters in the picture too.) Do they do the competition thing or just cheer at games?

Tink said...

Good God. I'd have to watch the game between my fingers.

Janet said...

All will be well. That's what all those girls underneath are for. And I agree, her form is much better than the other girl.

A girl in the Queen's gymnastics class just started first grade. And is a cheerleader. There is no hope.

Aoj and The Lurchers said...

Yikes!!

nikki said...

I think I just shit myself. Granted that's not hard to do these days.

I'd have to hide my head and not watch. I do the same when Ken's playing ice hockey and gets checked.

Kaytabug said...

I couldn't handle that. So glad I have boys! hugs to my J, hope you get through tonight!!

Junebug said...

Do they have twenty on their team?

Honey Mommy said...

That's incredible! Maybe I should be glad that so far I only have boys...

Beckie said...

That looks scary....

Eternal Sunshine said...

Well, I would say that boys are the way to go, but as you know, they give us plenty of grey hair inducing moments as well!

I do admire the athleticism involved in Cheerlading, though.

Mel said...

Proud and terrified indeed. No child of mine would ever do that. Not because I'd stop them, but because I think the long history of family acrophobia would get in the way....

Marylin said...

Oh my goodness!! I think my hair would have fallen out if she were mine! :)

I love that you still have my blogoversary giveaways button up. True friend that you are.

And, here I was thinking the hair had to do with Wonderhub using too much of the Hers. (slaps head) It's the teen years. DOH!

Burfica said...

hey at least her skirt isn't up around her armpits. heheheheh

Rachael said...

Oh goodness!

Rachel said...

Hells bells woman!

Those are great shots but I can see why you're hair is prematurely gray!
