I can't believe the AMAZING weekend that the girls and I had!!! As most of you know, my 2 girls are in an all star cheerleading team. This past weekend was the St. Petersburgh World Spirit Federation Championship. Rockstar took all 5 teams for this competition. Four out of our five teams got first place!!! The fifth team was a little tinis and they got 3rd, but my gosh!!! What a perfomance they put on!!! I love to watch them dance to their disney songs and just looking at each other to make sure they are all doing the right thing, and they love to shake their butts!!!! Our Minis won the grand champion (which is the highest score within all divisions in their level) and the Juniors won the Viewer's Choice Award, which was the award for the most memorable and exciting routine. Not only did these two teams win the additional prizes (not to mention braggin' rights!), but they were given a paid bid to go to a world's competition, which consists of other countries competing along with or national teams. This is such a great opportunity for them and I am so proud of their hard work and dedication! I have never seen a group of kids stick together and support each other in the manner that they did during this competition. To top it off, the parents were incredible! The energy that they had cheering all the kids on was incredible we were the loudest ones in that place. We were constantly getting comments for our program and for our parents. My daughter actually heard someone in the bathroom saying "that Rockstar team has to be on steroids or something, did you see how they hit every stunt!?" and then my daughter walks out of the stall with her uniform and they didn't know what to say! This is not just a team of competitors but they are truly amazing. And the coaches... my gosh!!! I have never seen coaches that are dedicated, caring, loving, understanding, supporting but at the same time tough, than the three that are at Rockstar. I am so proud to be a part of the Rockstar family and I will forever be grateful for them opening up their door to me and making me part of their family. I love each and everyone of them kids, parents and coaches alike.
Well, I've also been talking about some cheerleading dolls that I had been working on for a while. For these away competitions, the team usually give the kids something memorable to place on their bedroom door. I offered to make the dolls as something to use for one of these competitions. Little did I know the amount of time that it would take to do 82 dolls. But I can also tell you that the look on their faces were absolutely priceless and they were so happy to receive them. Here's what they looked like:
