Emma started cheerleading back in September. We originally took her to the local class but after being disappointed in the coach, we decided to drive her the 30 min to another city. It might seem bizarre to some people but the coach out there is great and we figured if we could get a bad coach or a good coach for the same amount of money, why wouldn’t we take her to the good one?
Emma had her very first competition on Dec 14. She did great and her team did too! Here’s the video of them. Be nice, they’re 4,5 & 6. Emma is in the 3rd row and 3rd back.
Her team is the Middleville/Otsego team. Here are the results
Can you believe it? Her team took first place and they’re going to State competition next month!!! I’m so proud of her. Not so much for winning (although you know I love that 😉 ) but for practicing hard and trying her best. She was excited to get to compete and kept asking if she would get a gold medal if she did.

So there ya go. State competition is the end of January. Rumor has it that the girls from Detroit are big and the teams are huge. We’ll see how we do.
