Sidenote: I love how I took a huge bite of. . . something unhealthy I'm sure. . . right before I pushed record on the camera, and the whole time I'm narrating I'm smacking and swallowing. But I didn't want to miss the moment!

Brace yourselves. I'm posting a long series of cheerleading films. Alyssa and Bailey just finished up their summer cheer program. They both had a blast. You can see that Bailey's just having fun, and Alyssa's. . . intense. I know you're all asking, "Where's Katie?" She chose to do Tae Kwon DO this summer. I'll have to post pictures of her in her uniform. I think it may have been the biggest draw to the class, though when asked she said her favorite part was "the punches."

Our hotel in Phnom Penh was really nice, although all the beds we experienced in Asia were quite firm. Also, during one of my jetlagged moments of wakefulness in the middle of the night, I encountered a cockroach in the bathroom, and I quickly remembered how much I hated those things as a kid in San Antonio.
These pictures were also taken at Wat Phnom. There was an elephant ride some of the people in our group took, and the elephant was wearing shoes! (I got a kick out of that, even though I claimed to take that picture for my kids' benefit). One of the most fascinating things about Cambodia was the children. School was only a half day, so they could go either in the morning or afternoon, and so there were always children selling in the shops, especially at the tourist traps like Ankor Wat. Also, a lot of the younger children wore very little, especially since May is the hottest month of the year there, being the last month of the dry season (there are only two seasons, the wet and dry). And there were no diapers. The little boys walked around in just a shirt or nothing it all, and the little girls just wore dresses. They were so stinkin' cute, though I'll forego posting their pictures on the internet =) The children in these pictures were selling snacks and fruit, and the one little girl is balancing a container of flat bread on her head.

The girls have been on a leprechaun kick ever since St. Patrick's Day when they saw a Disney movie, "Luck of the Irish." I said, "Did you guys know Grandma Tillman is from Ireland?" and Alyssa said, "She's a leprechaun?!" so I said, "No, but she was born in Ireland." Katie said, "Does she just eat Irish cheese all the time?" I don't know where that came from, but I said, "No I don't think so," and Alyssa said, "Does she do Irish dance?"
Although Grandma Tillman probably could do a mean Irish jig, I have never seen her.
