Volleyballer

Aubrey decided she wanted to try volleyball out this year and I'm so glad she did! She loooooves it and is improving every day. She has told me with excitement last week, "I've finally found my "thing" mom!" So I'm happy she is happy. She comes home from practice wanting to practice more:) And with that kind of an attitude, I think she can go far! I take her to the church gym some evenings just to bump around. Its been fun. I played volleyball in Jr. High(an awesome "B" teamer:) so I sorta know how to play. Its been awhile...so I stink. But its been fun to get to relearn the game. The rules have actually changed a lot since I played(and I'm not that old)! Crazy. Its so fun to be parents of team player again, watch the games, and cheer her on! Our girls have usually only been in personal type of sports, non-competitive like gymnastics, dance or tennis. Once when Aubrey was 3 or 4, she played soccer-thats it(it wasn't her thing:). So its fun to be those crazy parents in the stands again!




This is her team this year: THE TITANS! Its a group of great girls and she is having fun with them. She has a good friend from school on her team, Brylee(holding the sign), and we are happy they get to play together! She also has a wonderful coach, Julia. She is great with the kids and goes above and beyond. We also found out after signing Aubrey up that Julia is also LDS, just in a different ward, kinda rad! Small world.









Here she is ready for her very first game...


And here are a few action shots during the last couple of games...

Team sports are supposed to be the best exerpience for kids, to help them as adults. Looks like fun!

I'm proud of how far she has come in such a short time. Not too shabby for her 1st year.

Most adorable Volley Ball player ever! My youngest daughter Amanda played volley ball all through highschool. She wasn't very tall, but she could jump! She was highly prized by her team and she also played on the Varsity team at Uni. Now she plays Ultimate Frisby and loves it. I think it's great to have your children involved in sports. Active kids are happy kids. It's healthy and it helps to keep them out of trouble! xxoo
