C-C-H-S! goooooooooooooooo crusaders!
i cheered in the 8th grade and i was pretty good. i danced for years and hitting the moves and keeping beat were never a problem for me - especially the voice projection.
KJ was good at all of the above as well, but one thing we sucked at and i mean really sucked at were the jumps.
did i mention that the year before my high school got first in cheerleading nationals?!? who were we kidding?
KJ and i practiced so much. i had a trampoline in my back yard and we would be like, "we are AWESOME on this trampoline!!", then we would go on the concrete and couldn't jump for shit.
we also couldn't do a back handspring. actually i don't even think KJ could do a cartwheel. we were a walking mess.
my "trick" was like a somersault, cartwheel and a round off - then i patted my head while i rubbed my stomach. look at me! look at me!
KJ and i bonded over our sucky cheerleading skills.
if there was a squad composed of loud and coordinated girls who just failed at toe touches and back handsprings we would have been captain and co-captain. for sure.
there are so many random stories from my childhood involving KJ, i mean we lived across the street from each other since we were like 6. we grew up together. to this day we even both work within minutes of each other.
basically what it comes down to is that there is something to be said for having someone in your life like KJ for as long as i have. friends like that are a hard to come by and i am so thankful that i have her and her family in my life.
love you KJ! xoxo

Hmm…I’ve got some pretty good stuff seeing as I’ve known you since 2nd grade…I know you’re unbeatable at Bubble Bobble and Oregon Trail, you would never let anyone borrow your American Girl dolls (HA-I’ve got my OWN Samanatha now!), you have an incredible singing voice and are a great actress, there is no one you love more than your mom and sister, and that we pretty much were awesome playing the game “War” against our sisters. Although I don’t think we ever actually played, just mostly set up for it all the time. Love ya!
