State 2008

My best friend, Kristin, is now the coach of her high school's pom and drill team. So, I thought that the state competition would be the perfect opportunity to come support her. And to watch the competition after 9 years, since I was last there performing with my high school's drill team.

So, Shallon and I flew up to my home state, Washington. And my super sweet mom drove us over the pass and through the snow to Yakima, where the competition is held every year.

I arranged it so that we stayed at the same hotel as Kristin. And the first night I snuck up to her room and we talked for hours, just like old times (except that I brought my 6 month old baby and she's 8 1/2 months pregnant, other than that, just like old times)! I miss my best friend. I wish that we lived closer to each other.

Thanks mom, for driving me all the way to Yakima (and for financing the trip)! I miss you and wish that you lived closer, also!

That sounds like so much fun! And probably a nice break with just one kid. Shallon is getting so big!

Hey it is Amy(Cheney)again. That is so fun that you got to go to state! I loved watching Hazens team when I was in high school and I think that it is the perfect job for Kristin! I am glad you had fun and your girls are soooo cute! Oh, and I love the preschool projects I am teaching preschool next year and you have given me some art ideas!
