We've been in Iowa a little over a full 24 hours. We left little 'ol Richmond at 8am and arrived at our hotel around 9:30pm. It was a very LOOOOOOONG drive. We watched 4 movies! ANYWAYS, since we have been here, we have done so much already.
We made a music video for the BANQUET OF CHAMPIONS that is Monday evening. The theme was CANDYLAND. So we acted out a little skit, shook a leg and called it quits! I spent the remainder of my night putting the video together!
Today we got to practice where we will be playing for the remainder of the tournament (the TYSON EVENT CENTER). It is extremely nice...and very bright. It's a huge arena with three courts in the middle. The center is right across the street from where we are staying, so we've been walking everywhere!
Tonight we ended our day with a kid's camp! We ran a volleyball clinic for local 7th graders. It was so awesome! We got to teach them every aspect of volleyball. I can't even remember being that small...it's crazy! But they were very attentive and eager to learn. I buddyed up with a few of the girls; it feels good to share my love and passion for the game.
Tomorrow will be a SUPER BUSY day. We start the day off by helping out with the SPECIAL OLYMPICS that are at the Tyson Event Center. Then we get to practice one more time before the big game on Tuesday. After practice we'll eat! Then later on, we will get to be spoiled once again and dine with CHAMPIONS! At the dinner is where the mash-up of all the team's music videos will be played.
Here is ours!
