My husband teased me this summer when there was a job opening for our school’s Varsity Cheerleading coach. “Are you going to do that too?” He asked. “Um, NO!”, was my answer!! That is a HUGE commitment. And frankly, I’m not the best coach anyway. On the 1 to 10 scale of being interested; I was a negative number.
Buuuutttt, I wouldn’t mind “playing” coach for a night! And tonight I got to do that! The new Varsity Coach (who, for the record, is completely awesome!!) already had a prior engagement when she took this job. So just for one night, I was down on the track with the Varsity girls 🙂 It was great!!
A little known fact about me – when I was in 11th grade, I joined the Varsity Cheer Squad. I had never cheered before in my life. I was about 50% interested in cheer. And 50% wanting to have a great view to watch the game 😉 I cheered only for football my 11th and 12th grade years. And that is it. And it was fantastic tonight being on the track!!
Tonight I am thankful for getting to “play” Varsity Coach tonight! I am thankful that the girls seemed ok with me! I am thankful that we won the game tonight! And I LOVED seeing the looks on the cheerleaders’ faces when the crowd was so pumped about the game that they were starting cheers themselves!! It was wonderful!!
