We are glad to be back into the grove of practicing and traveling with friends.
This weekend, Emily's team had their first tournament of the season.
We are playing at a higher level this year, so we did not know what to expect.
The team ended up in third place after 12 hours of volleyball.
Then we had to drive 3 hours to get home.
It was an amazing day, but very loooong!
This was our view for the early morning drive in.
Piling up for a picture between matches.
Getting intense....needing to step it up a bit!
The boys played football, rolled down that big hill on the right, made new friends
and really didn't complain until the very end of the day!
Of course, volleyball can get to be a little tiring for the spectators.
The girls at this level learn to ref the games.
Emily enjoyed her time on the stand. The game she reffed went to 31-30.
The game is supposed to end at 25, but because a team has to win by 2...it can keep going.
What a great group of talented girls and coaches.
We are looking forward to a wonderful season.
We are playing in the snow.
We are watching a BIG football game
and spending the evening with friends!
Have a great week!
