True Courage

So, I have blogged before about Mikayla and her stage fright. And that she has worked really hard to overcome it.

She still has stage fright. And she still gets really nervous.

But she continues to push past it and do things WAY outside her comfort zone.

Today, she tried out to be a cheerleader at the middle school.

I am not sure how I feel about this, cheerleading is a whole other blog post, but I am so proud that she tried and so happy that she continues to push herself beyond what is comfortable.

I wasn't able to get a picture, but we have two more days of tryouts, so there is still time.

I just wanted to say, publically, that my daughter continues to set a wonderful example for her dear, old mother. And thank goodness for that.

Yeah for cheer! I tried out my Jr. Year of high school, didn't make it. Tried out for my SR. Year and did. It was one of the best things I've ever done. Good Luck to Mikalya.

I think that is awesome. I love it when our kids are brave and confident. I am still working on Caleb. He loves the piano but is so afraid to take lessons. Good job for Mikayla. I think she would make a cute cheer leader.

Go Mikayla!

Good for you, Mikayla!

BTW - I don't know if the "butterflies" ever go away completely, but every time you get in front of an audience, you'll find it grows a little easier :)
