And though she be little, she is fierce.

Tryouts for the high school volleyball team were this week!  Katie has worked her little tushie off all year.  She LOVES to play and playing every day is nothing but JOY for her.
But there were not a lot of spots...and it was NOT a sure thing at all.

But she made the team and we are all so delighted!

Here in Wisconsin the public schools do not start until after September 1st.
But the sports get going earlier.
The first football game is tonight!

I'm so glad God gave us our little Katie....
It's an exciting, fun time for her....
and us!

Encourage one another,


  1. Way to go Katie !!! I am sure they recognized your talent and devotion, and I KNOW you will be a huge asset to the team.

  2. So glad you have this fun time yet too. I'm loving the grandbaby stage but every year about this time I long for Tiger's soccer and Flame. It is just as strong now as it was 5 or 10 years ago. And good for Katie! The Shakespeare quote is so perfect!
