Volleyball has taken over my life. Funny thing is, I don't even play the game. My daughter loves the game, and I have grown to love to watching the game.
Last week was tryout for her school team. This week, she is already on a break from school, so I signed her up for 4 days of volleyball camp at the University. On top of that I signed her up for two days of clinics which we hustle to after volleyball camp. This is in addition to the clinic she is taking on the weekend for a couple of months. So that works out to 5 days of volleyball this week.
I know it sounds like a crazy schedule. When we were chatting about my daughter's full volleyball schedule, one of my friends once told me, "You drank the Kool Aid!" But I actually enjoy it. It has been a rewarding experience to watch my daughter grow as she learns the game.
Team sports teaches dedication, perseverance, and a slew of great life skills on and off the court or field.
Yes, I drank the Kool Aid!
