another first

good morning.
as i mentioned in this post, we have experienced a lot of firsts lately.
first, we started school, and then on the same day, the girls had their first JV volleyball game.
i was a little overwhelmed.
i tend to be a perfectionist and major planner, so having to start school, travel over an hour to a volleyball game, while getting all of their school work graded and getting ready for the next day made my head spin.
my husband says i need to go with the flow more.
i say he needs to plan more.
he's probably  right.

we are a part of a local church's home school co-op group.
the friendships that we have made are priceless and we feel so blessed to be a part of their team.
elly and maddie started playing volleyball last year, and i cannot believe how much better they have gotten already.
their coach is a dear friend of mine and she is a true treasure.
i am so grateful that we have this opportunity!

on the way to the game...
look at those ears.
couldn't resist.

the team


elly and her dear friend, sophie.
if we weren't a part of this team, we may have never met her and her amazing family.
we love them so much

practicing team work.

biggest fans...or goofs!

anxiously waiting.

miss 'mighty' maddie.
never underestimate the power of a determined little girl!

focus and determination.

good sportsmanship.

they won!
and i didn't get a shot of the last scoreboard. boooo.
nail biter for sure!

thanking the One who gives the victory!

happy girls.

well, there you have it.
our second 'first' for the 2011/2012 school year.
many more to come!
blessings to you on this beautiful day!
