Go Flyers!

Last night the Xavier Women's basketball team headed north to face their A-10 rival the University of Dayton Flyers. We decided this would be a good opportunity to introduce Harper to the UD Arena, even if it did mean staying up past her bed time.

Matt wasn't with us, we went with Nana and Dziatku, but that may have been a good thing. Harper's favorite part of the whole affair? The cheerleaders. I was telling Matt today how she copied what they were doing and saying and he said, "Why didn't you stop her?"

She copied their arm motions and tried to yell the cheers. When they came out onto the floor and did pyramids, she stood on my lap with her hands raised in the air.

Harper's grandmother was a cheerleader, and I believe Aunt Meaghan did a short stint in a cheer skirt as well. Auntie Shannon was a cheerleader for Halloween once, but cheer leading is not really in this family's blood. I've said it before, but (according to Matt) if Harper spends time on the basketball court she'll be wearing a jersey.

Awwww! Seriously Kels, she could not possibly be any cuter. I could take a bite out of her.

I *love* that Matt said "why didn't you stop her?" That really cracks me up.

Although somehow it didn't get mentioned in the post (nice omission Kelsey), I would like to point out that the Lady Muskies handled the Flyers pretty easily.

Love, Daddy

Okay I am sorry to all of the cheerleaders of America but I agree with Matt. Hammy definitely should be wearing a jersey. Look how cute it looks on her already!! She is too adorable.
