Cowboys Cheernastics

So, my girls have been taking "Cheernastics" for a couple of months now and we've been more than pleased with their love for it and progress with it. First, let me say that I know these pictures are terrible. I promise (once I find a great camera to borrow) to get some really great ones for you because these do not do them justice at all.

Anyway, my baby girls are learning so many things that it's amazing to see how quick they pick the stuff up. Basically, this is a competition cheering company that is locally owned and very well run. So when I refer to "Cowboys" well, this is what I'm talkin bout. My girls love it so much that they are now also officially members of the tiny but tough and terrific Tumbleweeds squad. They are still learning the basics now but come fall they'll be heading to local competitions and they can't wait! So, here are a few pictures but like I promised, you'll see more and you'll actually be able to tell what they are doing.
Gracie midst her famous cartwheel. Her legs flip over like a windmill! This also happens to be what they all do all over my house and anywhere there is an open spot on the floor these days. We should rename our living room the Cowboys Practice Room.

Clara working on her back hand spring.

Maggie is over there on the wall doing her hand stand.

And again bear with the quality but we were so proud of this one. This is Gracie standing on that dude's hand. Not his hands: his (singular) hand. We couldn't believe it!
So, here's to another adventure for the Hicks Circus!
But I think it's going to be a fun one for us all!!

I think this is great. Will come in real handy in a few years. Would love to see one of those competitions.

Very cool! You'll have to let us know when the competitions are so we can come cheer them on!
