Wow, can you believe that we are already two months into 2014! It has been a terrible winter, weather-wise in Atlantic Canada, so Spring and Summer can't come soon enough to suit most of us.
Meanwhile we have been living our daily lives and Taking Care of Business ( salute to BTO) . One of the more upbeat and fun things that I have done lately is to attend a Cheer leading Competition.
This particular one included my lovely young granddaughter and a whole array of other energy infused pre-teen and teens. These young boys and girls exhibited more patience, team work and down right dedication than I have seen in a very long time.
Now, I am sure that the teachers, parents and various and sundry choreography specialists had a wee bit to do with it as well, but I only witnessed the end result!
With the walls of Harbour Station virtually vibrating with fast paced upbeat music, there were jumps, bounces, rolls, cartwheels, and human pyramids that left this observer breathless.....and I was SITTING in the bleachers!
What a great way to channel the abundant vitality and spirit that these kids possess, and in doing so teach them the importance of hard work, trust, and fellowship.
Apologies for the photography, but I was spending more time being a Nana than a good photographer!
