wallyball :)

Wow I'm a little behind, Wednesday we weren't able to play volleyball at our church, or another one we've played at before, because the gym floors were being re-finished. So after the weather decided we couldn't play outside we ended up at our local fitness center at eight thirty for wallyball! We ended up playing three on three, Cassie, Becky, and I against Dan, Jenny, and Ryan. Now while three on three in volleyball doesn't make a very good game, in wallyball with the court being so much smaller works great! We usually separate the guys since they can jump higher and hit harder than us girls but oh well. We didn't keep score, just kinda played around, though I'm pretty sure that our team lost Haha. Some of the highlights of the game: Ryan and Dan both had some awesome, straight down hits (though it is a lower net which makes it easier for them to do that more often) Becky had some amazing saves both up at the net and on the back row! Including blocking one of those straight down hits, though I'm sorry I don't remember which of the guys spiked it. And all throughout the game, because of the the net height and his long arms, Dan had a tendency to jump, reach over the net and tip the ball we were trying to play down into our faces. It was almost impossible to save, though its not a legal hit either...Haha. So in one of these situations Becky, playing the met for my team, set the ball up, just a little too close to the net, and Dan hit it right back down. Now just so you all know, a lot of us have developed a a certain reaction when Dan hits the ball... We throw our arms up(or down depending on where they were to begin with) to protect our faces :) so Becky acting is self preservation threw her arms down and ended up catching the ball just right sending it flying right back under the net ... Right into Dan! Now this all happened very quickly, like Dan was still coming down from his jump when he got hit. Next thing we knew he was on the ground, though he thankfully wasn't really hurt, just taken by suprise. Haha that's what you get for stealing the ball from Becky's team! Just kidding, it was funny though.
I am so greatful for the people who come play! We have such a fun group, it really makes it an incredible day of the week. And with it being summer I can break out my backyard net for some backyard volleyball!! Love it!
