Cheerleading for Hope has kept us pretty busy. She has practice twice a week and then cheers for the K-1 football games on Saturday. It's generally pretty entertaining. Being the lightest on the team generally earns her a spot on top of the pyramid. At 36 pounds, I don't think the 'base' girls mind too much.
I had the pleasure of going with the kindergartners on their field trip to Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park last Friday. I always get a little nervous about the kids riding on a bus on the interstate, but there seemed to be no incident. There were lots of other parent volunteers and we had to drive seperately. I didn't mind because when we were done it gave Hope and I a chance to go shopping in the city.
We had a great time on the field trip. Hope chose Jacob to be her partner and he is easy to keep track of and doesn't talk much. Eli came with us too because he's a lot of fun. Of course, at the end of the day Hope finally mentions that Eli didn't have the shirt tied around his waist that he started with. We looked all over for it and found lots of shirts and jackets, but none that were Eli's.
Hope's other big news is that she has lost two teeth now. She is thrilled the tooth fairy has come and left her money. The second tooth she just lost this week and she was very concerned because she lost it on the way home from school. There was a fear that the tooth fairy didn't pay out if there was no tooth. Fortunately, the tooth fairy is understanding in matters like this.
