Over the holidays I was at my friend Christina’s house for movie night one night. Her 6 year old daughter Ella is in her first year of cheerleading. While I was there we had this conversation:
E: Are you coming to my first competition?
Me: Of course I will! I’ll yell really loud and I’ll even wear a shirt with your name on it!
Ella giggled and did a couple of cheers for me and that was the end of that.
I got a call from Christina last week. She said Ella’s first basketball game was Saturday and was I still coming? Ella asked Christina who all was coming and after C answered “Me, Daddy, Hudson (her brother).” Ella said “But what about Shannon? She said she was gonna wear a shirt with my name on it!” Wow, that kid’s got some memory!
Her team colors are navy and yellow. I have a navy shirt and luckily Christina had some yellow letters. She cut out E-L-L-A for me and stashed the letters with some safety pins in her mailbox. I swung by, readied my shirt and arrived at the game in full support of our favorite little cheerleader! She did a great job and was the cutest thing!
