Curse of the cheerleaders

Emily joined a competetive cheer squad in May. What that means is they don't cheer at games or anything, they only cheer at competitions. Here she is in the parade way back in May

Now cheer "season" starts around October, but for some reason our coaches didn't get the uniforms ordered until around November, so the first competitions they were scheduled to be in were in January.
The first was January 11th. They had to drop out because the uniforms still weren't in. I'm not even going to tell you how much I paid for said uniform because it's embarrassing. The next was January 18th, which was completely cancelled, no explanation.

This Sunday, as in 2 days from now, they have a competition in Stockton. The uniforms are supposed to be in today, but if not, they're still competing in their practice clothes.

I don't really have a point here, except that a lot has gone wrong so far this season, so maybe keep these girls in your thoughts on Sunday, that nothing goes wrong, and that they have a blast. They've been practicing 3 hours a week, they deserve it. You know I'll be back with pictures.

Well Tell Emily I said Good Luck I'm sure that they will do GREAT. Sound like the coach needs to get with the program, No need in the girls missing out just because their coach is making mistakes.
