Jess and I had an 'anti-Black Friday'. We avoided shopping altogether! Maybe the fiasco she experienced year scarred her indefinitely. It involved something along the lines sitting in parking lot traffic on Hwy 101, miles from the Gilroy outlet exit, long lines out the door in freezing temperatures... all at 1a.m. in the morning. All that misery to maybe save a few bucks? No thanks!
Instead, we went to see Angie and her team compete in the regional cheer competition at the Santa Clara University stadium nearby. The whole cheer thing was new to me and it was very interesting to watch the girls perform their moves. You could tell that these teams had really spent lots of time and effort into perfecting their routines. There were jumps and flips and pyramids. The amazing thing was there was even a category for girls as young as five years old. It was non-competition, but they were really adorable doing their little routines.
And her team succeeded to making it to the nationals held in Florida in two weeks. Go Angie!!!
