IMG_5095      My granddaughter is among the Ballard High School Cheerleaders going to Vancouver Washington to participate in the State Championships.  I don’t know who was more excited, the cheerleaders themselves or the assembled parents and grandparent (me) to wave them goodby.  Many of the parents are going down to Vancouver today to continue their cheers.  Great fun.  Wish them luck!
