Well, here I am. Not that anyone but Liz is reading this anyway. I'm guessing everyone gave up on me, which I don't blame them for at all. So, what have we been up to the last few months... Mostly I have been following my sister and her team around the country watching them play volleyball. They actually had an incredible season this year. The beat Hawaii, who was ranked I think 3rd in the COUNTRY at the time, in the WAC Championship which was incredible! They were the total under-dogs and it felt just like it did when Liz won the state championship for the first time, ok maybe this was even a little more exciting. It was broadcast on ESPNU and if you watched it you probably saw Kade lifting Liz up on his shoulders after the victory! Those two... Then to top off the whole thing Liz was named the MVP! So awesome! Anyway, after that we had a wonderful Thanksgiving on the beautiful sunny beach down in Encinitas and then I went to UC Berkeley with my parents to watch Liz play in her first NCAA tournament appearance. That one was a loss but it was still amazing just to get there. I am so proud of that girl. I keep praying that our children will somehow get her athletic genes through me. One can dream right? Well, I guess that's all for now. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season so far. I LOVE this time of year!
