Annaliese cheered at her first football game last night. We've been talking a lot about cheerleading and what she'll be doing, hoping to ease her nerves. Maybe we didn't do such a good job. On the way to the football game, we were all talking about the football players, who they were, how old they are. Annaliese got the most puzzled look on her face and said, "There's going to be real people there?" Maybe she thought she was cheering at a video football game!

But when we arrived, our Little Cougar Cheerleader got a cougar paw painted on her face, picked up her pon poms, and went out on the field like she's been cheering for years. Good job, Annaliese!

She asked us at half time which team she was cheering for and we quietly told her the ones that match her uniform. I'm not sure if she really got the whole point of cheerleading but she had fun and can't wait until next week. Unfortunately our Cougars lost pretty badly, 38-3, but I'm completely convinced that the other team had kids old enough to be in college and not Junior High. They were way too big. Oh, well. On to next week!
