Perfect

I love this photograph...

I was taking photos for the cheerleading squad. They had an "official" photo taken for the yearbook.... and right after it was taken? All the 8th graders quit the squad. Their applications for high school were in, their participation on the squad was documented.... so screw the rest of the girls... screw their chances at a competition...

For the boys basketball season, except for one game, there were no cheerleaders when the 8th graders played... as a protest, in essence. The exception was for the last game of the season. We (the mothers of the most senior members of the squad....Oh, yeah.. that was me and one other mother!) decided that it was unfair to the 8th grade boys. So, we decided that if the mothers of the younger girls were not on board, our girls... all three of them, would cheer for the 8th graders... and oh. all the girls cheered for the 8th grade game. If they have to be cheerleaders... we expect them to build character, after all.

What was our thought about our good girls having to be shown in the yearbook with the quitter girls? We didn't want it. (In fact, I have issues with PARENTS that let their kids quit an activity mid season... What the HELL are you teaching your daughter?!)

Anyway...

Wouldn't this picture be the best revenge... not a single 8th grader in the mix.

Yeah, I thought so too.

I am not in favor of this school.

What the hell is wrong with those girls?
