Something I like

This is a quote I found on line plus some adjustments. (I added the Cheer part)
Just wanted to share. Have an amazing day!

as though no one is watching,
as though no one can hear,
as though heaven is on earth.

This past week I have been practicing to be an MVMS Cheerleader. We learned a chant, Dance, Cheer, and Jumps. Yesterday was the nerve racking tryouts. I think I did amazing!

The day started at 9 when we all picked numbers. Then we got into groups. 1-4 , 5-9 for the 7th and 8th graders. I got number 4 so I was in the first group. We preformed our chant, cheer, dance and jumps. Then we had a long nervous wait for results. Finally we all went out after the long waits, tiring conversations and stressful pacing. The Judges chose an 8th grade squad a 7th grade squad. In fact, I am now a 7th grade cheerleader!

It was such an amazing experience. I am glad I got the chance to tryout.
This is Just the beginning of a miraculous seventh grade year!

This past week was Spring break so my family decided to take a special trip, to see family, in Arizona. We had a blast from swimming in their pool to shopping and going to Amazing Jakes. It was a 16 hour drive there and 16 hours back so we were all exhausted.
On the way down it started hailing. It was scary! The hail was huge and coming down quickly. It stopped shortly after ; however, the lightning was still there. After about two and a half hours in the car, we arrived at my cousins to stay the night.
The next morning we woke up at five o'clock so that we could get to Arizona by dinner. It was a sad good bye but we had to leave. We drove and drove and drove until we arrived in Arizona. It was exhausting but, we wouldn't drive like that for another week. Thank goodness.
The next week was a blast. We swam in the pool almost every day. One of the days we went shopping and I bought three new shirts and a really cute purse. I believe it was the Tuesday after Easter that we went to Amazing Jakes, a enjoyable place that has a buffet and lots of rides. The day after that was my cousins birthday so my other cousin and I made up words to the song Fabulous, off of High School Musical 2, and sang it to him. After all of the fun, it was time to leave. There were tears (probably most from me) and really big hugs. Of course trips like these can't end without a trip to the doctor's office, my mom told me. We ended up taking my little sister to the doctor, because she had been complaining about her arm. We came to find out that she had dislocated her little elbow. Luckily, it wasn't to serious, because she felt as good as new right after he popped it back in place.
The drive home was longer than ever. We drove until we finally entered our house at 1:30 a.m. We were all tired and couldn't wait until we'd see them again.
