Today when I picked up Lottie at school, I asked her what
the best part of her day was, and without skipping a beat, she said to me;
"Well, I did the best high kick of my life!"
Lottie and her friends are really into cheerleading.
They have a little squad and assigned positions,
(Lottie is the flyer).

Claire and Jane were never really into cheerleading growing up,
so this is kind of fun for me since I was a cheerleader.
And boy, do I love to tell her about my cheerleading days
(my position was base).
But my stories are more about the stupid things we did.
I didn't take it seriously once.
But I loved the camaraderie with the girls and going
to all the games, and, of course, all the boys.
For Christmas, Lottie has asked for a cheer uniform with pom poms
and before bed, she sat me down and presented to me her Christmas list
(again, for the 20th time).
She had it color-coded and taped to her wall.
Then we practiced some high kicks in her room together.
