Last night was the Cold Stone fundraiser from 6:00-7:00. I honestly didn't hold out high hopes for the fundraiser. The weather was a bit rainy and you have to admit they are kind of expensive. Turns out they had a steady line of people coming through buying ice cream. Cheergirl had a blast and took two shifts preparing ice cream and says that she would love working there. The singing part has me concerned though. They sing when there is a tip dropped in the tip bucket and I am pretty sure Cheergirl would be fired the first week. Love ya Cheergirl!

I was certain I had posted recently but I guess not. Life is incredibly hectic I guess.
Let's start from the top and work our way down.
Pizza boy - probably a good idea to change his name, need to think about that though. Pizza boy took a class a few weeks ago to get his Arizona Guard card. Now the wait for it to come in and hopefully find a job in security. Not sure what else to say about Pizza Boy right now, maybe a topic just best avoided.
Cheergirl - always my longest paragraph since the gal is so busy. Cheergirl went to camp at NAU in July. The team had an awesome time. They won a prize that in turn allows them to go to Florida to perform in the Disney Christmas day parade. They will be travelling and performing the first week of December. But ahhhh what an expensive trip. The team has been fundraising like crazy and a few of the parents are willing helpers, me included. As always there are some who just don't step up to the plate so it falls on others shoulders. Anyways..... we have had multiple fundraisers, girls made calendars, girls hosted a cheer camp, selling mardi gras beads for homecoming this week, several other events as well. It has been a blast but exhausting. Most of the trip has been paid for, now the goal is to just get the airline tickets paid off by the end of October.
Cheergirl part 2 - I absolutely can not believe this is Cheergirls senior year. We need to get on the ball and get organized with college prep etc, etc. What happened to my baby girl with the little alfalfa sprout on top of her head lol.
Origami Girl - I don't even know where to start with this girl. She has really changed a lot the last couple years. Her grades are excellent where in the past they were a struggle. She enjoys drawing and writing. She writes all the time. She has also know developed an interest in making little movies with stories that she puts on youtube. Her grammar is getting better and better as she works literally nonstop on this interest. We have to fight her for a turn on the computer. Origami girl is in eighth grade this year. I absolutely can not believe she will be in high school next year. Origami girl has also now decided that she would like to try out for soccer. Ugh... more $$ lol. Need to try and squeeze in a physical tonight at urgent care. Sadly it may end up being a waste. It has been years since she played soccer and you really need to have ongoing experience to make a team. Ahh well we will see.
