ASU Volleyball

To celebrate the last 8th grade volleyball game (record 0 and 11) and the getting of our lives back, I took Courtney to an ASU volleyball game last night. It was great. We met a few of her team mates and their parents there. The games are not very well attended so we had great seats. What a different experience when you are used to watching 8th grade volleyball to witness the action of a college game. We are going to try and go again soon before their season is over.

After the game we were able to go down on the court and meet the players. Courtney brought her volleyball from home and had some of the players sign it. It was interesting to see how tall they really are. Courtney is about 5'7" and she is expected to grow another inch or inch and half according to our pediatrician. On the ASU team there are two girls shorter than Courtney (5'1" and 5'5") and then all of the rest are 5'11" or taller. I think it kind of smashed Courtney's dreams of playing college volleyball but the ASU players were so kind and encouraged her to keep playing as much as she could.

After the game, we drove around the campus area a little bit. I think Courtney will stay home until she is married, she said "I don't want to go away to college, it is scary". Want to keep your kids home under your own roof and away from the scary world? Drive them through the bar lined streets of a notorious college party town - it will work every time.

this player was crouching down to get her picture with Courtney - she is 6'1"

Looks like fun--Coco is so famous getting her pic taken with a real ASU player.

Hey--I've been lost on those streets of ASU before--and it is kinda scary. Especially when your not sure which way the freeway is--do you remember when I called you at 1 am to help me find my way back to Scottsdale? That was NOT good times. That was SCARY times.
