This is the Kind of Grandmother I Want to Be

One of my long term goals is to be a Sun City Cheerleader. This group of women, ages 61-81, don their cheerleading mini-skirts and perform all over Arizona.

Oh, to dance around in front of a crowd with pom poms again! This thought makes getting wrinkles bearable (and keeps me motivated to exercise and eat well as I get older).

This is the kind of grandmother I want to be.


  1. LOL! I can totally see you doing this. I was just as inspired when chatting with a professional volleyball referee recently. He had just gotten back from reffing a tournament for 75-yr-old men!! They were some champion players back in the day, and kept playing throughout life. Ref says they were taped and patched up out there, but still playing! Totally agree with you . . . gotta stay active!

    Wait a minute . . . is the only reason you want to be one of those cheerleaders so that you can wear costumes with sequins all over them??? :)

  2. So fabulous! I'll totally do this with you!
