Ok, so some of you may know that dd's gym is starting an all star cheerleading program. The cheer coaches knew that dd started out in cheer and really wanted her to at least try out--ya know, get evaluated to see if it was something that she may be interested in. Well, I let her go to the try-out and they ended up keeping her for the whole 3 hr practice. She LOVED IT!! She got to work with the older kids in stunting and tumbling and seemed to mesh really well with everyone. They are full aware that she will be also doing MDL Level A next year and they are going to make sure that the practice days don't conflict. Dani's gym coach and the cheer coach already discussed her doing both and they are going to work together to make it work. So, it looks like we will try and do both next year. She will have gym 2 days a week and cheer 2 days a week. The competition schedule may be a bit tricky but we have a while to figure that all out.

Dani is thrilled about coming back to cheer and also being able to uptrain her Level A skills. Her Level 4 States is in 2 weeks so we are mainly focussing on that right now.

Thanks for letting me share!!!!

Thanks Bog! And don't worry--I will steer clear of the crazy moms and I think by having Dani do both, the 2 sports will help balance each other out. I've learned from experience that the way to survive cheer is to pretty much stay away from practices and don't talk to people too much!!!! LOL
