Volleyballs done! Yeah Me!

Some of you may know that I volunteered at my daughters school to help out the volleyball program if they would extend it to the 6th graders- so Emma could play. Well, they took that and ran. I became the 6th grade volleyball coach. Some of you might also know that I don't know a thing about volleyball. I looked long and hard on the internet and got tutorials and videos and the new book of rules. I did a lot of reading. Unfortunately, reading doesn't do much for skill! And skillz is something I don't have! Very, very luckily for me, I found someone in my neighborhood that not only knew what she was doing, she had actually coached high school volleyball before. Hallelujah! She couldn't come all the time, at first, because of her son's soccer- those days were extra hard, but in the end it all turned out. We had a fun time, the girls had fun, they all learned something, and so did I! Thanks Donna!! We ended the season winning against the 7th and 8th grade team. The girls, of course, were ecstatic!
