sharing a few snaps

First place. Gold division.  Way to go!!

Here is the winning team from last weekend.

This team is really cool.  They have improved a ton this season.
Coach Morgan says that this has been his favorite year of coaching and that is really special!!!
Don't you think?

A special tribute for a teammates daddy who passed away this week. #ALS #FTD #teamslove #diy #caringhearts

The girls made these shirts as a special tribute for a teammate's  daddy who passed away this week.
They were allowed to wear them for our final two games on Thursday night.


Katie's friends came to the games to cheer her on.  So sweet!!!
Cousin Wesley and his wife Stephanie come to the games also!!
Our setter served for 21 points straight and we were afraid Katie wouldn't get in...
but she finally did.  Oh man.  

Today is the Big 8 conference tournament for Varsity. It's at our school so Katie is already at school working and I am finishing up with the Italian beef that I am bringing for the hospitality room.

Can you believe I started the beef at 10:30 last night and it is still not ready?  Yikes.  What's with that?  I've put it in the oven for a few hours...hoping it decides to get tender!!!

Last night the news was about how warm our winter MIGHT be...
this morning it was 26º.

It's beautiful and sunny so I'm not complaining!!

Have a happy weekend dear friends!  
Lots of love,


  1. I woke at 3:00 a.m. to a crash of thunder and pouring rain. If that isn't music to my drought-ridden ears, I don't know what is! Praying for a warmer Wisconsin and a wetter California.

    So glad Katie's team has done well. We love winning around here (-: And how sweet they are to honor their teammate's dad.

    Mucho love,

  2. Very happy Katie had a good season. Looks like a bunch of very nice young ladies. Our world is in good hands!

    We had one of those special days today with a low this morning of 55 and a high so far of only 83. What we really need is some rain, but I am thankful for you to get some Di.

    Teamwork is so great for young people and looks like Katie is appreciated. :) What a lovely group of young women, inside and out.
    love and prayers, jep

  4. What a great tribute to their friend. I'm glad Katie got to play!

    It's been in the 70's for the past few days and 50's in the mornings/evenings. Beautiful sunshiny days after all the rain. I'm interested to see just how cold it will get this winter.

  5. Great news about volleyball and friendship! And how nice of the coach to share his thoughts on how special this year has been to him!

  6. The weather here finally turned to Fall today. Though it has been in the 30 and 40 at night most days it's been up to the 70's by noon! Now it's a blustery day and I'm trying to decide if I should go for a run...or just skip it! Glad to see the girls supporting each other, how cool!
