Last day of Spring Break. It went by so fast. We had a chilly time in CO. I am grateful for the memories. Cat’s team did way better than expected. We went 5-4. Took 2nd in Silver National division. Counting American teams (lower level) that’s 8th place out of 80 something teams. We played the national champions and the top four ranked teams in the Nation. It was a great experience for them and I know it helped elevate their team if nothing else but in mental strength. After the tourny, we went up the mountain despite the warning of avalanches and undrivable roads. We sled down hills in Fisco Co and shopped in Breckenridge. Addie got sick on the way down. My poor sea level babies. We don’t belong so high up. It wasn’t as cold as I feared until we left. A Historic Cyclone Blizzard hit right after we left. We got the last plane out and made it home to Sunny SA. I am thankful God was on our side.
There’s only room for three in my circle. Me and my girls. Everyone else just disappoints and needs to back up.
I’m here. Barely. I need more. I need a reminder. I am tired of this.
Valentines day as a MS teacher is no bueno. The crinkling of hidden candy wrappers, hyped up kids acting foolish. They think it’s a free day bc why who knows. Then we had vball practice, pizza and donuts with team. homework and spelling pretexts. I’m just ready to go to bed and dream of another time.
This weekend went okay but was harder than I expected. The team was not my team. It was not my rotations or formation and I felt like an imposter yelling at the girls. They took it well especially my girl. We ended up taking third. We beat the teams we needed to and lost to the top two teams. Our loss to Alamo stung a bit but our team just wasnt ready for those big hits and challenging serving. Coach Maggie watched the films and wants to move Cat to libero. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I think that’s a position she needs to learn bc she isn’t going to be a hitter for much longer. she will eventually be Ds, setter or libero bc we are short Mexicans. I guess we will see how it goes. I’m going to start making some calls for private clinics. Liberos are after my time, so I have no clue how to help her. You tubes got my back.
Overall I am grateful for the experience. I think I am a very good young athlete coach. I rock Addie’s team teaching fundamentals. The big girls are out of my league. I was really sad I missed my baby take zone championship. Back to back. Next weekend is city playoffs and we have a volleyball tourny at the same time. Yikes. Not sure how that’s going to play out. But I guess it’s a good problem to have. My girls are my life.
what about now?
It was a long weekend. I’m pretty sure I work with kids too much. All day teaching 90 kids, come home to my two then at night coaching 10-12 more. Include the 32 athletes on two vball teams and a basketball team over the weekend. I just want silence some times. I can only find it at 6:30 in the morning before starting it all over again. This is when I think of you.
Another year another billy. Please meet Sweet Sugar Frosty Snowflake Yellow Butt! Addie can’t decide on a name so I use them all. The last two are my addition bc afterbirth is gross.
