Grace tried out for the 7th grade volleyball team this year.
...Right along with 52 other girls.
She has never really played except for a summer camp this summer, but something about that smile made them think, "Hey let's give this girl a chance," and they made her the "team manager."
She is learning all kinds of hard things (like how it makes you sick to your stomach when the whole team has to do 20 pushups for every serve that doesn't make it over the net, and she didn't make even one over out of about 15 tries the first day).
She's also learning all kinds of great things like how the heck to play this game and to be a part of a team.
