I had such a nice day on Thursday. Yesterday was "Australia Day" (so Happy Australia Day to all the Aussies) and it was also the annual Korean Volleyball Tournament. We had a tent for the first time in 3 years which was nice. The previous years we looked like the orphans of the tournament and if it rained we would all spread out and and try to find shelter in the tent of our other church friends ... kinda sad if you saw it actually.
But I look forward to this day every year ... not only because I love volleyball, but it's a great time to hang out with our own church family as well as other church friends we haven't seen ... usually since last year! And I wanted to say a big "THANK YOU" to all the parents who helped out with preparing the meals and the drinks! What a big difference that made this year!
How did we do? Well, we tied our 'best ever' placement from last year by making it to the quarter-finals ... not bad for praticing only 3 times prior =) Yes, it's very different from my US church volleyball days ... but it was still fun. The "hang-out-after-we-drop-out" seems to be another big reason we all go to this thing ... which was another reason why yesterday was so fun. In all honesty (I'm not just saying this), I think if our team actually practices, we could win this thing. Ha ha ... but I'm sure every team says the same thing when it's time to go home.
I didn't bring my camera, so I'll have to wait till the other guys post their pix on their blogs and then I'll steal one from them. I have some major sun burn right now ... but it was worth it =) A great day of great fun hanging out with great people ... with Christ in the center of it all ... that's a taste of heaven right there. Can't wait till that becomes everyday =)
