I think sports are great. Playing a sport will teach you a ton of life lessons. We really wanted my daughter, Taylor, to play a sport. She said she wanted to give volleyball a try. So we signed her up and she has been practicing for a few weeks. Its been tough. She has had a difficult time getting it and there has been some tears and frustration. But I kept telling her to keep at it and she will get it eventually. Well yesterday was her first tournament. She got out there and gave it her all. She actually did pretty good for her first time! I was so proud of her. Her team actually won their first two matches and they made it to the finals. I couldn't believe it. I also couldn't believe that I was missing the opening week of the NFL! We got home around 11:30. I was bummed about it but I had such a great time seeing my kid overcome her fears and do something she really enjoyed and get something out of a sport, that it didn't matter. I love football but I love my kid more than anything.
