We were surprised when Ida asked if she could do after school cheer leading because that doesn't follow the Ida pattern. She likes to be home with her mom, something she tells me every morning before going to school or Sunday school. She likes to be home playing with her brothers. She has told me in the past that she doesn't like riding the bus because she misses me, I had no idea how she would stay after school without me.
Josh picked her up the first day. I called him on their way home because I was so curious to know how things went. When he answered the phone all I could hear was Ida gabbing nonstop in the background. She loved it. We were so happy for her.
And, she's got rhythm! We went to the varsity girl's basketball game to watch her cheer during halftime and she's a really good cheerleader, right on beat while never forgetting a move. It was so much fun.
