Last night we won our FIRST VOLLEYBALL MATCH!!!! 25 to 0 both games! Now ask me how that worked! hehe
Tonight we went to the Red and White game at our church. It's where the women staff play the girls team at volleyball and the men staff play the guys team at basketball. IT WAS AWESOME!! Kailyn, Alaina, Justin, and I sat together and we had a blast. (yes we were sitting on bleachers, and yes my back side is happy to be sitting in a padded chair right now!)
The girls beat the ladies.....but as always year after year.....the men staff won!
Also something really cool happened! Our football team went to the championships this year! They lost by 10 points. Yes we were all so proud of them especially considering that our team has stunk the past couple years. They went so far....had awesome team spirit and all the TACCS gave them was a plack. So....Mr. Wilson had all the team members and coaches gather in the middle of the gym. He told us all what a phenomenal job the guys had done...then he said, " these guys worked so hard, had THE best team spirit, and this is all they got." and he dropped the plack on the table in front of him. Then he said this. " I want to be the first to put in my ten dollars to get these men the trophy they deserve. Who will help em get it?" Then everyone started clapping slowly at first, then a little quicker....all in unison....as many men headed for the table throwing in there ten or twenty dollars. Even some of the kids brought one or two. They then counted it and we had raised almost 2oo dollars to get them a trophy! Cool huh? I just wish something like that would happen with the building fund!

Friends can have many different qualities. There are three qualities in a friend that are very important to me for specific reasons. These three qualities that I want in a good friend are trustworthiness, respect, and a desire to serve and please God.
Trust is important in any and every relationship. I want my friend to be trustworthy because I want to know I can trust him with anything. Whether it is something as small as a secret or as big as my life, I know he’d never tell my secret and would save my life if he could. Or if I asked him to do something for me I know he’d get it done.
Respect is also a very important quality. I want my friend to treat adults and people in authority over him in an honorable fashion. In my eyes, if a person shows respect then he himself becomes worthy of my respect and that of others.
Above all, I believe that the sincere desire to serve and please God in every aspect of my friend’s life is the most important. The Bible says in Proverbs 27:17: "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend". Since I want to serve and please God, my close friend, the person I spent a lot of my time with needs to have the same desire because we either sharpen each other or make each other dull.
I am very blessed to have many friends that have these qualities. Sometimes my friends make mistakes and I understand, just as I know they do for me when I mess up. But overall, my friends are the best!
