Megan cheered at her first game yesterday. This is her first year at Field but her third year cheerleading. The girls cheer for the basketball team. She looked adorable. And so very happy. It was fun to see her with all her friends and she wasn't the least bit nervous. I admire this girl so very much for that. As a kid I was rediculously shy. I could have never gotten up in front of a crowd. And Megan doesn't bat an eye. She is also the shortest one on the team. It's too funny to watch. I was thrilled when Megan made the team but did not have the money to pay for it. Megan's Grandparents, Grandpa John and Grandma Sandy paid the cheerleading fee for her. Thank you!! My favorite picture is the one on the bottom where she is in mid-cheer. Her pompoms are blurry because she was moving them so fast! The girls had a blast watching their big sister cheer and all three are planning to cheer when they hit third grade. Yikes that will be three fees all at once! Where is Prince Charming when I need him!!!
We also ran into friends from our adoption group. When we adopted through Catholic Charities we went through 2 months of training with 4 other couples. We were the last couple to get a baby. One couple P & J adopted their son and then almost 2 years later they gave birth to their second son and a year later gave birth to a daughter. I hadn't seen them in person in a few years so it was fun to show off all 4 girls. And great to see their youngest son who is in first grade. I always worry about what Megan's Birth Mother would say if she knew about our situation. I am sure this is not what she was thinking about when she placed Megan with us. Things have definitely taken a drastic turn for the worse. But Megan couldn't be with anyone who loves her more. And everything I do, I do for the girls. It just was hard to answer to this couple last night who seem to have everything going for them. Makes me feel really bad, you know?
Then I was supposed to go out last night on a date after bringing the girls home. But I just couldn't do it. I am not at that place right now where I could add another person to my life. I'm a hot mess as my sister often reminds me. Who would want to walk into this situation? So I cancelled it. I want to get my job/finances/moving situation stable before I venture out into the unknown. lol
Unless of course you know a millionnaire who is available?!
