Katie says, "my middles", I say, "Twin Towers".    Great playing last night, all around!

My sister Janet is Tiny.  She was given that name by our maid, Pauline.
I can her her say it in my head and that is probably the best hear Pauline's voice! :o)

But when I look at Katie with her two Middles from her summer volleyball team...all I definitely think...there's Tiny!

Brooke and Kirsten are Katie's good friends from school.... they are full of fun and life. ...and perfectly tall for volleyball!
Katie is not the right size for volleyball, BUT she works really hard and has a great feel for the court.
She is a setter and is not afraid to dive and go all out.
She really does love it.  We are hopeful that she will make JV this year.

No Excuses!!!


  1. Setter is a perfect position for the height-challenged. Molly topped out at 5'7" and played successfully throughout high school and on college club, too. Go, Katie! Best of luck to you! You and your buddies look so happy! :)

      That would be...light a city....silly me!

  3. Oh, I hope she makes it, too! How tall is Katie? How tall are her friends?
    I towered over my friends, too. Still do. ;) But I don't realize how much taller I am than everyone else until I see photos. Crazy.

  4. Katie is 5'4" her friends are close to 6'

  5. Sure sounds familiar to me......always the shortest one in the mix with my friends (and still am!). Good for her to tackle sports like that and to work hard to be on the team. I never had that self-confidence as her age and instead encouraged those taller than me ;-)

  6. She can do it! We love Jimmy Butler on the Bulls, he is short and amazing. We call him Jimmy Buckets.
