Lady Hawks

Today was Day 1 of the annual President’s Day Tournament for volleyball.  It involved meeting the team at Caribou Coffee at 6:00am to head out for the hour long drive to the location of round one.  I have a love/hate relationship with this tournament.  I hate getting up that early.  I hate the driving that far.  But I love a weekend of volleyball and I love the memories it builds.  Today the girls took second place in their pool.  They looked good. Kayla served 11 points in a row during one game and had several aces (unreturned serves) and kills (unreturned hits/spikes).  I am so very proud of her.  She told me on the way home that she really loves the game.  And I love watching her play.  She has worked so hard and really developed her skills.  At 5’3″ with about a 2″ vertical jump she will likely never get a college scholarship, but she adores the game, works hard, and is  captain of her team. 
 As with any 8th grade girl, the most important part of the game is looking good.  The girls take turns bringing ribbons to the game to wear in their hair.  She saves them and displays them on her bag. 
Unless you have a ladder next to the net, volleyball is not very conducive to good pictures, but here’s a snapshot

And here’s how my boys feel about Project 365
