It's the end of the 2009-2010 school year and time to celebrate Nicole's year of cheerleading. Last week Erik and I accompanied her to her Cheer Banquet..... here are some of the highlights of the evening.
Nicole and her JV squad....
Nicole lettered in cheer- only twelve girls out of 32 lettered this year!
She also received a special award from the coaches- 'The Peacemaker Award'. Her coaches recognized her efforts to keep peace among the 18 girls on her squad- not an easy thing to do. But she did a great job and her coaches wanted to recognize her and let her know they had noticed.
Saying good-bye is never any easy thing to do.....there were lots of tears shed at the end of the banquet by Nicole (and I'll admit I had a lump in my throat too) as she said good-bye to her year of cheering for her high school.
Nicole with her good cheer friends....Sami and Brittany.

Cheerleading was something that Nicole never planned on doing, and although it was a tough year, she had some great experiences and it will be a year that she will never forget. We are so proud of her and the example she set for her friends on the squad.
Congratulations on a great year and all of your awards Nicole! We love you!
