Champs All Around

I've had a couple of lousy days this week and haven't felt like blogging much, but I did want to get some pictures posted from this past weekend.  Doc's parents were in town and I'm ashamed to say that I did not do a good job of taking pictures at all.  In fact, I only got my camera out once the whole time they were here.  We had a great weekend, though, and enjoyed having them here with us.  I wish they could be here more often. Over the course of their visit, we did lots of eating, playing cards, walking the neighborhood, watching the Grizzlies, playing outside, and just generally having a good time.  Saturday morning Doc had his final tennis match of the season.  I had some business to tend to out of town so I didn't get to go watch, but everyone else did and said he did a really great job.  He played doubles this week with his team captain.  Lala was able to snap a few pics for me.

Doc and his partner won 6-3, 6-2 and his teammates all won their matches, too, making their team first place in their league!  So exciting!  This means they will play in the state tournament at the end of June.  Luckily the state tourney is in our city this year so we won't have to travel.  I just hope it's not too hot!  First place champs - not bad for Doc's first year to play in this league.

Here are the only pictures I took over the weekend - everyone dressed and ready for church Sunday morning.

The kids have both recently taken entrance exams to get into a new school for next year.  They both did well on their tests and have been accepted into the school.  We are, of course, very proud.  They are our champs.

While I have not been able to shake out of my funk lately, I was able to take out a little frustration on the volleyball tonight.  Doc and I play on a co-ed team in a church volleyball league.  Tonight was our tournament.  We played our first match at 6 and were victorious, which put us in the championship game at 8:00.  We lost our first game in the finals, but came back strong in the second game and ended up winning it all.  After several years playing in this league, we are so glad to finally be the champs!

There is no state tournament for us to play in, or even a trophy to take home, but that's ok.  Tonight, we were winners, and that's all that matters.
