3rd Grade Cheerleading ~ 1st Game of the Season

Cheerleading season is upon us once again.  

McKayla started to worry when 4th & 5th grade squads were formed and she still hadn't heard about 2nd & 3rd. The computer lab teacher took pity on "her" girls and volunteered to be their coach b/c she couldn't let them miss out on cheerleading.

Getting a coach and squads together so late made us scramble. Tryouts were November 3rd and first game was just weeks away. Uniforms had to be rush ordered. Practice sessions crammed in. So on and so forth.

Luckily, there were quite a few 3rd graders from last year's squad who knew most of the cheers from last year and could help the 2nd graders one-on-one. (Coach N. calls these gal's her Seniors and that thrills McKayla.😃)  So that helped in the cheering department.

Uniforms should have been simple even tho they were rushed but illness prevented them from being completed in time for our first game. Skirts and briefs were done but the tops still needed finishing, which resulted in the girls needing to wear white t-shirts tonight.

Now, with all that said, let's move on to the pictures from tonight's game, shall we? 😊

1st Game was the girl's basketball team. And it was interesting to say the least. Being the first game of the season, the 1st game ever for 2nd graders and a few 3rd graders, it was certainly a learning process. Cheerleaders included.

It didn't take them long to get the hang of it tho and they looked like pros by the end.

Unfortunately, our girls basketball team lost 12-4 ☹ but again, I feel like the first game teaches them how to proceed and as long as the girls had fun, that's the bottom line.

The boys game was intense. One player from the other team was a beast! He had super speed and accuracy and was scoring one right after the other. We didn't stand a chance against him.

She was adjusting her skirt and shirt, then saw me and posed lol

Needless to say, we were creamed 25-2. Ouch! But the girl's still had a blast cheering for the school and that's what counts for them. 

Next game is this Saturday PLUS the parade we're in, so it's gonna be a BUSY day lol

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
