Anyway, we didn't follow the bus to the tournament. We left at 8:30 instead and arrived just in time to watch Hannah play her first match. And it was FREEZING outside! I wore my cute little reef flip-flops and crop pants since Mr. Incredible told me that it was going to be 70 degrees! Thankfully I packed a blanket and a jacket. Brrr!
Hannah and Skyler had an easy win. I think it was 8 to 1. Then we waited an eternity, not really- just 4 hours, until her next match. Again, I wish that I were kidding! We retreated to the rattlesnake killing suburban to wait it out in the warmth of the car.
Finally it was time to see our baby girl play again. This match wasn't quite so easy. The girls were down 5 to 1. And then they made a HUGE come back! They brought the games to 6 to 5 and they were ahead. Woo hoo! But, in the end they lost 8 to 6. Boo!
Then we waited another eternity, or so it seems until Hannah's championship (meaning for 3rd or 4th place) game. We decided that since our last meal was at 8:00 that morning and it was now 3:30 that we needed to find something to eat. The town we were in was very small so it only had 2 convenience stores and day-old-fried burritos did not sound appealing.
We chose to make a 45 minute drive to the nearest town where incredible Mexican food awaited us. We inhaled a basket of chips in 5 seconds flat, I think. The waitress just smiled and kindly brought us some more chips until our order came. We were starved...and I think it showed.
We made the 45 minute drive back to watch Hannah play where the sun finally came out. Delight! Hannah and Skyler played so well. They ended up tying the championship game. It was 7 all and then 8 all and then they lost in the end. They finished the district in 4th place and we are so proud of them.
I love this look of concentration and I am so proud of her! Hannah has made straight A's all year, ran Cross Country, played basketball, ran track, and played tennis. Whew!
We only have 13 more days of school and for the first time this year there is not an athletic event to be a part of...strange!
