Bitty Bombs 2.0

Allie's cheer career continues.  How CUTE are her photos this year!?!?!
 
 




 

 
These girls BLEW UP the mat this season!  They have come soooooo far!  Looking back to last year and seeing where Allie and her team are now...my have we grown.  Not only have we grown with our skills, stunts and choreography...but our team has doubled in size!  This season these Bitties brought home one 2nd place win and two 1st place wins!!!  Never in my wildest dreams did I see that coming.  Congratulations, Bitty Bombs.  Super job well done!





I was so proud of Allie when she flew with NO BACKSPOT!  She is a great little flyer!  Her cartwheels are perfected and she is beginning to work on her back walkover now. 



Allie was thrilled to win her very first trophy this season!  It resides on her shelf in her bedroom for all to see.


Allie is so proud to be part of the MWX family!  She looks up to the big girls...one day!!  Thank you to Midwest for an amazing year.  I can't wait to see what next year beholds!

St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's 2017 fell on a Friday.  We all went to school dressed in our green and afterwards, Allie and I sold cookies at Marco's...trying to reach her goal. 



Bright and early Saturday morning, our wee friend, Lucky, left a wee green surprise for us.  Green Lucky Charms and green Oreos.  Also, a fun rainbow and gold treat.  Silly Lucky also scattered his gold all over the place to a mini pot of "golden chocolate" in our cabinet.  Lucky reminded us to talk about St. Patrick and how he was a good man and tried to do go things for others...just like we try to do. 

 



Thanks for the visit, Lucky.  We'll see you next year.

Lego League

Lego League happened Girl Scout style this year.  5 little scouts made up our team, The Courageous Cottontails.  We researched all about bees and how they are in danger.  Our challenge this year was to research an animal that shares the same habitat as the bee and build a model showing what we learned.  Our teams chose the RABBIT...cottontail, actually!
 
For the past 5 months, Allie and her teammates learned about where rabbits live, what they eat, and how they survive.  They learned about robotics and how to make one part on their model move (their rabbit, Daisy).  Today, all their hard work was showcased at Oakland Mall with the rest of the Leg League Girl Scout teams.  Great job, ladies...so proud of you!
 
 


 
Their model included lots of Girl Scout elements...Juliette Gordon Low and her troop.  Juliette worked in the garden.  Her troop worked in the bee garden gathering honey.  They took their food to the market via tractor.  Daisy the courageous cottontail ate a yummy orange carrot, but quickly rolled away from her predator, the coyote.
 

 
 
 
These girls presented all their information to the reviewer very well!  Way to go, team!

Student of the Week

Allie was STUDENT OF THE WEEK!  She shared herself with her classmates by creating a poster.  Allie wants to be a pilot (just like her daddy) and her favorite thing to do is cheer!  If she had one wish, it would be to meet her grandma...melt my heart.  Allie got to take down all the notes to the office and be the line leader all week.  How fun!
