Who Knew?



Years ago, (I'm afraid to declare how many, just in case someone out there reading thinks I am younger than I am) I was a flagtwirler at Timpview High School. I was on the drill team my junior year, but as seniors we all decided to try out for cheerleading and flagtwirling. There were 6 Varsity cheerleaders and 6 Varsity Flagtwirlers.....(no I did not twirl with the band....not that there's anything wrong with that). I decided to try for Flagtwirling because I thought my chances were a little better making it. In those days, you tried out in front of the student body and they voted---that's how you made it. (That is a frightening thought). Well I was pretty sure the skills I learned that year would NEVER come in handy again...I was wrong. This year in our production number the seniors are going to twirl flags....Who Knew?

I love it...maybe I will get enough courage to do my MOLAHIETTE picture?!? Nicole said she looks so much like her daughters and what long skinny legs she has! :) When she looks at my MLSH annual...she just laughs!

I never thought I'd use my hula again, but we worked that into a production number too! It just goes to show how important it is to be well rounded in your dance training!!! I'll have to look for a picture. Not sure if I have one...

That is flat out awesome. I love how you post older pics like that-- I need to see Pauline's old pictures! I never have! Thanks for your comment--yes, Brit just did my hair the other day. She darkened it and cut it for me. Fun little change! So when are you guys coming to Utah next?? Christmas maybe???

PS- Cheerleaders at my high school (just 10 years ago) were chosen by student vote, too!
