There's Another "Baller" in the House...Who Knew?

Well, Shae's volleyball career is officially over! It is sad to think about not having games twice a week...or practice every day.
The Redding Christian Lady Lions ended up First place in their league! The first round of playoffs was this week...we played another Christian School, which was so nice. The girls held hands and prayed before the game! Our school always prays before the home games, but it felt so good to be in the presence of fellow believers!
I will miss watching Shae and Sarah laugh when they are in position waiting for the serve! I always wondered what was so funny.
I will miss Shae's blocks {and her Dad's face when she got a good one!}
I will miss the good "kills" that made the crowd roar!
I will miss Maeghan's loud cheering form the stands!
We ended up losing to the other Christian school. But if we had to lose to anyone, we were all glad it was them. There are 29 kids in the whole school and every girl but one was on the team. They were undefeated in their league, and we are praying that this little team will go all the way to win the Section! What fun to chat with all the parents after the game and get the story of this "little team that could."
We had a few faithful fans drive the 1 1/2 hours to cheer our girls on. The boys bball team had practice, so a couple of them hurried to come afterward...BTW, thanks alot to the boys coach who wouldn't change practice so they could all come...argh! There was practice the night of our last home game too...the opposing team had 3x more fans there than we did! Why is it that we bus the whole school to BOYS playoff games??!! {getting it off my chest, people!}
Anna is a "Baller"
Just on the heels of Shae's volleyball season, 5th/6th grade basketball started. We were pleasantly surprised when Anna agreed to try out! The funny thing is, she seems like a natural! She is one of the best players on her team!

During their first game, she had 4 rebounds and dribbled the ball down the court like she had done it all her life! I could not stop laughing!

Maybe we have a point guard in our future! But, chances are she will be a post if she ends up with her big sister's height.

Bless her heart, it is so much running! I am exhausted just watching! What great cardio!

Scott has told her he would pay her for each basket...and more importantly, each foul! (he did that with Shae when she played basketball too!) Anna is so sweet and wouldn't ever want to take the ball from someone else, or worse, bump into maybe "moneybags" will be tempted by the $$$$.

Lindsay is thrilled to be able to "cheer" at Anna's games since they are in the afternoons. But to be honest, she associates games with the snack bar! I am sure Scott appreciates having someone to chat with during the games though.
