The BYU-Utah Rivalry game is always much anticipated in our State and there is a clean division of lines drawn for the team of choice. Game day sports either blue or red attire depending on who you're cheering for. Hailey got to wear both colors this weekend as she attended the Woods Cross High School homecoming game where the graduating seniors last year returned to cheer with this year's cheer squad.
She's still transitioning to college life and ALL that comes with it--roommates she didn't know, a new cheer squad, YSA ward, cooking 3 meals for herself, hard college classes with lots of homework and not having anyone telling her what to do, when to do it or where to be. She LOVED seeing her old friends at the WX football game!
These cute alumni are all doing great things and have wonderful adventures planned in the near future.
The next day Hailey wore blue. So did we! John and I are both BYU alumni and proud Cougars. We went early to the game so we could meet Hailey in between her appearances and pre-game show.
President Uchtdorf also was in attendance. Wonder which team he was rooting for???
LOTS of cheerleaders--All-Girl Squad (which Hailey is on) and the boy/girl stunt group get to perform to the Cougar Fight Song after touchdowns.
Oh, and Hailey also got a BLUE car this weekend to drive until she leaves on her mission so Grayson can start driving the white RAV all the kids have learned to drive on as they get their permit and new driver's license.
I guess that saying is true... "My daughter and my money go to BYU!" (as she drives away)
