Well lately I've been too busy. So I can criticize my own self for that, I've fallen into my own trap. But I still don't want to answer the question that way. It's still a choice ~ that I didn't finish my Bible study reading til half an hour before it happened, but watched an hour of TV last night. Or that I couldn't get that phone call made to my mother-in-law, but was able to sneak in some other time wasters.
I figured you were all tired of volleyball posts, but that is one thing we've been busy with, the last 2 weekends away in Vancouver. Dear Missy inadvertently gave me permission this morning to post more, with her comment of how she's loving following the volleyball posts :) So here's to our 4th in the province ranked girls! Woohoo!!
The girls had a steady match against Prince George and were 2 points behind both entire games and won both by a narrow margin heading us into the top 8.
We met up with Whiterock Seaside Surf, who barely beat us in the bronze match last weekend 27-25, and beat them handily in the game 2 and 3 after them slamming us 25-13 in game 1, putting us into the top 4. What an exciting match!
It's so nice being the B team, because there are no expectations, and if you do well, everyone is happy, if not a bit surprised. The A team are coached by the UBCO women's team coach and have a lot of pressure to perform, as it seems obvious they are being 'groomed' for post-secondary volleyball careers. They have so much expectation to live up to and it's hard for them. They came in a disappointing 10th this weekend.
We knew there wasn't much hope against the Coquitlam Ducks, the 1st ranked team, but the girls put in a good showing getting 25-19, compared the last time we played them back in Feb. This is a big team with a triple block on most plays!
Don't worry I won't take up sports commentating as a career.
