Varsity Cheerleading… Again


This past year Leandra as a junior in high school, had been on the varsity cheerleading team. I am happy to announce that last weekend cheerleader tryouts were held for the 2014-2015 school year.

Our cell phone bill has grown year after year. At one time we were paying over … [Read more...]
