Together We Can!
Looking Back: Let's Let The Parents Have The Final Word!
I wanted each of you to know how much I have enjoyed getting
to know you this season. I will cherish our times together.
Traveling, cheering, eating, and of course, indulging in
chocolate together was a blast. I hope that our paths will
cross again soon.
This has been the BEST year of travel volleyball our FAMILY
has ever had!! Not only did our daughter learn, grow and
enjoy... us parents enjoyed being at each activity, weekend,
practice, etc. because each of you were a joy to be around!

opportunity of a lifetime - this is what "team" is supposed

sad that it's over and I am really going to miss our

aware of and ones I am not yet aware of) to carry forward
with in my heart, it truly has been an honor and a pleasure
to have met and shared with all of you.

the chance to meet you and won't forget cracker barrel!
Dietzs: loved the stories! Always know I will walk away
smiling after a conversation with the Dietzs.
Cindy P, you truly are the nicest person I have ever met in
my life! Great example of someone who gives her best

giver of yourself. You are one of those people in life that
I feel blessed to have known.
Patty, how do u do it? What sacrifices u make for your

Lee, one of God's gifts to some people is hospitality. You

Cindi H, a caring heart, not just for your girl, but for all
of ours. Thanks for encouraging words.
Beth Anne, what a worker bee u are, thanks for all the time
you gave to finding us beds!

Co. would ever accuse our families of being rednecks!!
