It has begun: a new sports season. Sydney talked Erin into trying Volleyball this fall (something mother could not do)! Between Collin’s football and Erin’s volleyball it’s a busy time! I am excited to see them busy and learning new things.
The first week was against Lyons. JrH play their games on Thursdays at the same venue (nice!). The volleyball started at 4;30 pm with the “B” game. At first, ok throughout the afternoon, I was surprised that Erin did not even warm up. I was assured that she would play in the “C” game. (you know right when Collin’s game was!) Fortunately I got to see the first half of Collin’s game before I scooted to see the “C” game.
The 8th graders take turns with the captains at the coin toss and Collin got to be there the first night. He had some good tackles but was always on the other side of the field. Should I go over there for good photos?
I took this photo to show how much Collin (#11) has grown, if you look at last years photos Coach Comley has to bend down to talk to him (Collin plays option and takes the plays in). See here
Then at half time it was back to the High School for Erin’s game. She did well for her first volleyball game…EVER! I was so proud of her I could burst. Early in the summer she was convinced she could/ would not do this and here she is warming up! I was still adjusting camera settings when I took this one. It’s blurry, but kind of cool!
You go girl!
