Our Little Star

Actually she would be very upset to hear me calling her our little star since she really isn't little anymore at almost 11 years old. Wow how fast it goes. Katie has never been much of a sports fan, we could not get her interested in playing soccer or softball or even really a proper game of basketball. But as we said to her this fall she needed to do some sort of an extra-curricular activity and so she choose volleyball. So since Oct we have been getting up Saturday mornings or her to go and learn and play volleyball with a group of girls her age. Well one day she came home and said about trying out for the school team. I was very pleased because I enjoyed volleyball when I was younger too. Now I was like her not much of a sports person but volleyball was one of my favorites when I had to do it in gym. Anyways to make a short story long Katie's grade 4/5 split team won silver last week. She was disappointed that they had not won gold but is more motivated to try out again next year and do better. The cutest part is that she wears her medal around the house quite often. It is nice to see her so proud of herself and have a little more self confidence too. Lucky enough for us Chris was able to take some time off of work to see her play a little so this week I will print off the pictures and scrapbook that into an album too. Not sure if it is going in the 2012 album or if it will just go in her school album. All I know for sure is that I am happy I picked up some volleyball paper when I was at Hobby Lobby, lol, must have known they were going to win, LOL. Hope everyone is having a good day and here is a picture of our star! We love her!
Thanks for checking in.
