Survival in a Blur
Monday this week I had my volleyball girls come over after practice for dinner and some t-shirt decorating. A fun, loud group as any group of 14 adolescents would be. There was much texting(I'll have to consider electronic rules) and giggles. For any out-of-towners, we are in a bit of a heat wave. 90's all week. The gym has been HOT! And so it seemed a perfect night to build a campfire, and make s'mores. Well, at least it's a memory they won't soon forget. S'mores in 92 degree weather. yum.
We made a pasta sauce, each member of the team dropping an ingredient into the pot. Lots of individual ingredients combined to make a very tasty sauce. Very much like the way a team functions. So many different personalities combining to make something special.
We are managing, though the days feel like a blur sometimes. Tonight is our first game so I will get a better idea of what they know and don't know, or I will see a lot of deer in the headlights:) Like any coach, I wish my practices were an hour longer. Wayne does not carry that same wish so we settle for 2 1/2 hrs. long. I can't imagine what it will be like when Wayne leaves for Jersey, I'm really trying not to think of it. For now, all is well, just very very busy!
