practice, practice, practice... and homework

we always joke with Kate about "how do you get to carnegie hall?" - practice, practice, practice...

today was back to school and work for us.  kate had school from 7:00-2:30, then basketball practice from 4:00-6:00, then volleyball practice from 6:00-8:00, then homework until 10:45... it was a VERY long day (for all of us!)  i hate when she has these long days, but i am hoping it makes her a stronger student and athlete.  she really learned a lot at volleyball tonight.  it was her first day of travel and there were a LOT of fundamentals being taught.  i know she didn't like when the coach would stop the drill and show her (and others) how to do something the correct way, but she will get so much out of it.  she really listens and tries to make the appropriate changes, coaches LOVE her!!  they worked on overhand serves at the end of practice and she was starting to have success.

i stepped outside of my comfort zone a bit and talked with one of the volleyball moms.  we had a really nice time.  i am so glad i did that!!!

off to highlight my hair and then bedtime... i am exhausted!
