Cheer Tryouts!

Kayla, Sara and Hannah
today is cheer tryouts. I remember this well from last year. it goes on until approx. 9pm. then they announce the new squads. so for the next 12 hours I will be under duress. there are no guarantees from one year to the next. new kids come into the school and have the right to tryout. the best kids make it. Hannah is so overtired and mentally wiped out right. she needs to make the team to keep her spirit (and desire for decent grades) up. love you Hannah! you CAN do this!

Saturday April 17th

I bet you thought i was never coming back. Admit it. Well, here I am. My last post was the night before Santa Fe and I was super excited/nervous. I was a fantastic trip. Great friends and food and findings (beads and such). I had a blast. Santa Fe is so beautiful and it snowed. Snow for a born and breed SoCal girl is a big deal. Of course I had no appropriate clothing but so what? I left on a Thursday and came home Sunday night. And that is when I fell off the face of the earth. I came home to awful, hideous and sickening news. Although I'm not ready to talk about it yet (possibly ever) it was life changing. And so I have been hiding and napping and crying. I cannot remember ever feeling this off kilter with exception to my mom falling and winding up in a Nursing Home. So, in the spirit of trying to re-enter the world here I am. But truthfully, I don't have much to say. Honestly I am just emotionally wiped out. So, instead of Santa Fe stories I will regale you with pictures. For now, anyway.
