Cheerleader Wanna-Be

As I'm sure I have mentioned, my parents somehow lost my many albums of photos that date back to my fourth grade year. For some amazing reason, I kept pretty much all of my negatives! AMAZING! For Christmas I bought myself a negative scanner. Now it isn't the best quality and the negatives are old and dusty, but I'm thrilled to be slowly, but surely, getting my pictures back!

I thought it might be fun to throw in some pictures at random times and tell the stories behind them...so here's the first one:

Laura and Shelby were on some city league cheerleading thingy. Not sure what it was exactly, but my little group of friends in 6th grade liked to pretend to be cheerleaders. I mostly just took pictures of it, but I did manage to find one with me in it.

Here is the one with me in it...the tall, gawky girl in the hoody and pig tails. I look SO awkward! I remember REALLY not wanting to pose for this picture because I had NO desire to be cheerleaderish. My mom was still doing my hair for me in 6th grade, hence the pigtails randomly that day. I remember never really wanting to learn how to do my hair (I haven't changed much since then in that respect or in my love for hoodies!).

I love this one because the girls have turned their heads around to see what is going on behind them. The guys decided it would be great to come running up from their football game to make fun of us! I'm sure I would have been with them if I wasn't the one taking the picture!

The last one is over in this area because one of the girls...I can't remember exactly who it was, but one of them got in trouble and was 'benched' for recess. They had wanted to take the picture, so we had to go to her, hurry up and pose, take the picture and not be noticed before she could go back to being 'benched.' Oh the things we do for cheerleading poses!!
What do you think? Do I have a future in cheerleading?! HA!

AWW those pictures are so priceless. Allison for SURE you could be a cheerleader... you should definitely try out for the nearest sports team's cheerleading squad... maybe the Jazz?

By the way, it seems like not much has changed... hoodies AND you're still always the one taking the picture... hmmm... yep, sounds like you!

K. This seriously cracks me up because (A) you're wearing a hoodie, (B) you look miserable to be posing with your cheerleading friend, and (C) I can so remember the days of obsessing over things with friends.

IN 4th grade one of my friends was on a jump rope team, so we all became obsessed and started our own jump rope club after school. I think we had a few meetings, sketched up some jump rope routines, practiced, and then we just got over it, I guess.
