Good News. Bad News. One Night.
The bad news is, Olivia won't be able to do her cheerleading competition in June like we thought. Out of the 8 girls in her 5/6 year old group, only two - her and one other - purchased the uniform and want to do the competition. For many it's a bad time because of summer, some it's a matter of money. The two of them could compete and would compete against other teams of 8 or less in their age, but the other mom was not happy. She was furious that they didn't call her and give her the option before ordering the uniform and doesn't feel it's ok for just two. She doesn't want her daughter to compete, so we're out. Olivia can't do it with just one. She's bummed, but we plan on continuing with the next session in the fall and she can still use her uniform then for that competition. This was a pretty short notice and they only advertised to two schools for this session. Next fall they will be in the YMCA's booklet, private schools, etc. I think the turnout will be much greater and she will have no problem. They are changing things too to have longer sessions, and only two during the year so that it doesn't run into summer again. Bummer for this year though!!!
The good news is, Braeden can write!!! He always was so close before, but I think the glasses have really helped. Last night while Olivia was in cheerleading and I was reading, I had to pick Braeden up 15 min early for not listening and hitting one of the nursery attendants. Lovely. We did the time out in the corner thing and then he was able to draw on a big chalkboard they have outside where she cheers. Next thing you know, there's the most perfect B I ever saw. Then a P, and an O, and a number 1. Olivia came out then so we didn't work on more, but he and I were so proud!!! After getting ready for bed, we made this video...
You go Braeden!!!!
