Preparing again

We Won! Sunday's game was a nail biter, we won in the 5th set 17-15. Barely squeaked that one out, but we were definitely the better team, just didn't play up to our full potential. With that being said, we are still tied for 1st place with the teams that we will play Saturday, and then Tuesday. The three of us are all tied and they are must wins for us so that we go to Elite division next year. I PROMISE to update about those games right after they are played so that I don't keep the guessing game up hahah (sorry).
Today I went and visited Casper's school again because his students have been asking me to come visit everyday since the last time. It was nice being there all day and helping them in the classroom. Kids are seriously the best and always a million laughs. I had a blast and it was a nice day out and about.
Things are going very well out here on the home front. The weather is getting cold, everyday, whether it be in the morning, afternoon, or evening, you can see your breath in the air. I think I am adjusting to it though considering I am alright in a sweatshirt, jeans, and tank top, but much better if i have a jacket also hahah. Oh jeez, it's going to be a fun time with the CALI family comes out to visit and we look like snow-men walking around bundled up hahaha. I can't wait to see them. I am really looking forward to their visit, and it's about time to see some familiar faces and feel those family hugs! Can you tell I miss them a little bit?
I look forward to this weekends game and I am starting to mentally focus. Wish us luck! Hope all is well with you all and I will update soon.

Sov Godt,

We lost in pretty much owned. But that is the past and we must look forward to Sunday which is our next league game (we are undefeated in league still). Keep your fingers crossed...maybe even say a little prayer for the team and that we get our stuff together!

2 days away....

hahhha my look of intelligence/ the look i give people all the time
Normal look. Thanks Auntie for the head's cold out here and it comes in handy for sure!
All of us at dinner (don't judge me, I was super sick therefore I'm allowed to look terrible)
Marcus with his beautiful pumpkin
Andreas with his finished product (Marcus looking on)
Too weak and sick to cut through the frozen pumpkin
Helping Marcus get the guts out
Yes, in two days we have the biggest game against Br√łndby that we have played thus far in the quarter finals of the Polkacup. I cannot wait! Thinking about winning and the giant victory is such an inspiration that I will have it no other way, and I know my teammates feel the same.
Last Friday, Shelley and myself were invited up to Jesper and Anne's(the assistant coach and his wife who live above us) to carve pumpkins with them and their two boys and have dinner. Even though I was feeling like complete crud, it was so much fun teaching them about our holiday and how to carve pumpkins. I had Marcus, their youngest son, on my lap drawing the face on the pumpkin and cutting it and Andreas, their oldest son, doing his on his own. I had so much fun. Then, Anne prepared an amazing meal for us and it consisted of pork, broccoli salad, red cabbage salad, potatoes, and candied potatoes. I was so mad that I couldn't eat it all because of my super sore throat but it tasted amazing and made me remember what Mom's home cooking tastes like. For dessert, they make this rice pudding type dessert with a special kind of rice, cream, vanilla, sugar, and almonds. It was delicious. In the dessert they chop up almonds and leave 1 whole almond in it. Whoever comes up with the whole almond receives a present. I WON! ahhaha. It is a traditional Christmas dessert and therefore the presents weren't relevant in this case but that is how it goes down.
The weekend, Saturday and Sunday, was pretty low key and was time for me to recover. Since the doctor made it official I had Strep Throat this Penicillin has been helping so much and I am getting better. Monday I was no allowed to practice that much, doctor and coach's orders but today I went all out. I had a good practice and the team is geared up for Thursday. WE CANNOT WAIT!
Please wish us luck as we go into battle on Thursday and that we come out with another VICTORY! HOLLA!
