A great night of volleyball last night. Tia was tired, Kendall and I working on her CBK application and getting a little worn out. We decided to get ourselves moving for a Sunday night practice.

It was a little crowded when we got there, with 2 4-on-5 games going on. Instead of joining in, we went to the basketball court and did a little bumping practice. After about 10 minutes, one of the girls in Kendall’s league, who was playing on a court, came over and asked if we wanted to play. A few of their players had left, and they wanted to keep going. We decided to practice a little more since the other court opened up, but after a few serves, we wandered over. There were only the girl and her Dad, and another man practicing, but we jumped in with a 3-on-3 game. Eventually more people came and we ended up going for well over another hour with a great pickup game.

We have some tough games, especially with kids that don’t treat it seriously. Not the points or winning, but just the effort. Last night wasn’t one of those. Everyone was working hard and really trying. We had some great volleys and lots of laughs. No one wanted to leave, but I finally called it at 8:40 for us since it was late. Much later than we’d planned.

A fun time, though Tia was worn out and I ended up going out in the dark after 9:00 to feed horses. Our Polaris Ranger is great, and it made feeding so much easier. One trip around, filling the dump bucket and trailer, and much easier on the eyes to have the windshield.

A long day.
