since kenzie's team isn't doing the secret sister thing this year, i thought we should come up with some kind of gift to give to her teammates before their first game. as i was looking through pinterest, i came across an etsy shop that sold personalized volleyball pillows. i thought they were soooo cute. i showed them to darric and i think he got as excited as i did about them, because he called his mom to see if she would be willing to make them. i looked around online to see if there were any patterns, but the only ones we could find were kind of lame looking. so I got the idea to take apart an old volleyball and use that as the pattern. darric was excited about my idea and got right to cutting the threads apart on the volleyball.
at volleyball practice today, kenzie's coach was irritated with the girls and told them to take down the nets at 4:30 because she was done. darric was upset about the fact that sam quit coaching at their tournament this weekend and sat on the sidelines with her arms folded and a scowl on her face. so darric talked kenzie into sending her coach a text. kenzie was all for it. they worked up a text that included stuff about how they gave bigger teams everything they could handle at the tournament, but they didn't know how to finish. she hopes sam can teach them how to finish rather than giving up on them. the team wilted away to nothing without her and with the game against coronado coming up they need her. no response from sam. (come to find out, she was texting sydney all night)
