Girls of Fall
Wanna know something funny?
Her Dad and I really don't know much about Volleyball...in fact, Kev is pretty good at asking more experienced parents why certain calls were made. For example...first game of the season...I mean MATCH...first match... The girls won their first game... of the MATCH. So, during the second game, Kev noticed that the scoreboard had the number 1 up in the foul box. He asked me who got a foul, and how on earth did you get a foul in Volleyball anyway! I told him that I suspected it wasn't a foul, but was instead a way of signifying that they'd one one game in the match. But he was teased all night long about the "foul" by a couple of other parents sitting near us.
It's nice when I'm not always the ...naive...one.
Oh, and typically, Miss Kat plays only on the back row. But, one of the other girls was ineligible this week, so Missy has been playing the entire games for the whole match. Confession time...I'm kinda glad that this gal is ineligible, it means my kid gets to play more! So...anyway, Miss Kat is now playing all positions. She's even gotten a couple of kills and has a nice serve! It's much more fun when your kid is on the floor for the entire game--even if you don't know what the heck she's doing!
So, at our house, it's not the "Boys of Fall," but the "Girls of Fall." And that's just cool.
