Go Adia!!!!!!!!!!!

It was such a weird feeling when I drove onto a school campus, this past Saturday, to go to Adia's tournament and I see hundreds of girls in uniform walking around acting cool and looking so grown up. But it got even weirder when I walked into the gym and saw my little girl dressed up like a big kid on a real volleyball team. It seems like it wasn't that long ago and I was the goofy kid on a team making up dumb cheers and lighting up when I did something good. Of course being the cool mom that I am I see her and totally start crying... yes, I am out of control but the fact is Adia looked so cute (actually a bit more like beautiful) and she played awesome! She must have had some good coaching because she seriously worked it out there. Not only is she the youngest and smallest on her team but she is also one of the only kids able to serve over handed and she is a really good passer! Even as a mom I never got how into my basketball life my parents were and how much fun they seemed to have watching me play - now I get it! Oh and when I played basketball my number was 22 and when Kyle played volleyball his number was 10... it took Adia about 2 seconds to decide who's number she wanted. Notice who the cute coach is out there. He was so patient with the girls even though at times they seemed more into cheering for themselves then paying attention to the game. He even got to experience the thrill of a mom reaming him because her daughter didn't get enough playing time. He is always so nice... of course he was super sweet and "understood" how she felt but it's a good thing I wasn't there because I might have had a few not so understanding things to say to her. Yes, I am bugged and I think he did so good and I know his heart and how he hopes to bless these kids and so I felt so bad for him! Anyway... the point is that was so much fun and I am super proud of my awesome Adia and my super sweet and super cute hubby! Check out these pictures...



okay, seriously do they think they are cool or what? Notice my daughter isn't wearing the spandex shorts but I am still in shock seeing so much leg!



How cute is this one???
Way to dig that ball Adia... who by the way just scored her team a point!



Not to brag but this is a picture of an ACE!
Adia is the setter and she commented after the game to her dad "I don't like being the setter because I never get to touch the ball" - clearly the team is still learning since the setter is actually supposed to touch the ball every time.

And here is the team that played so good for their first time... they were so cute. As they lost almost every game of the day they cheered louder than any team saying things like...

"Pink and Black - Pink and Black - Don't mess with the best cause the best don't mess - don't fool with the cool cause the cool don't fool - from the East to the West Folsom is the Best! YEA FOLSOM!!!"

I can't believe this craziness. Way to go Adia! You ARE such a grown-up girl!!! (Oh and whenever Uncle Kiff makes fun of me for doing something I ALWAYS say, "Don't mess with the best cuz the best don't mess!" - such a good one.) Love you, Adia!!!

She is way too grown up - it is making me cry and she isn't even my baby! It seriously took me back to when Kyle was younger - weird moment but true!

She's gorgeous! I can't believe she can serve over-handed. I could only do that for a while, and I know I can't do it now!
