Once we got it going things came back pretty quickly. Jess's volleys were great! She had a really sweet angle shot that whizzed by! My serves got better towards the end and my favorite volley to date was the last point of the first set. I totally slammed it down and it felt really good to get a bit of my frustration out.
Tomorrow will be another day full of tennis! Jess and I are playing in the Inland Empire Tournament out in Mead. We don't know what exactly to expect, because we are from a 2B school and there are several 4A school from around the area. We are keeping our fingers crossed and hope to make it to the second day. We play Selah first, a small school from the Yakima area so we'll see what happens.

The Handsome Gentlemen.
With our dates.
We then took off to CDA and found Mrs. Trom taking pictures with a red carpet to really make us feel like stars! It was really beautiful and very well thought out. We had dinner on a boat and was a cool experience. We had fried chicken for dinner and cheesecake for dessert.
After the food the Juniors had put together a hilarious slide show that gave everyone the preview of what each Senior would grow up to be. Then they each gave us these great plaques with our futures written on them and a really cool senior class picture in a silver frame that now sits on top of my book self. After that we had a bit more time to kill before our speaker for the night, so Casey, Matt, Stephen and I went to the top of the boat to take some more pictures.
Stephen & Myself
Soon it seemed everyone followed us up there and it was a great picture taking frenzy!

We might be twins. lol.
Then Chris Rogne spoke to us about how to move on to our College lives still wanting and being with God. It was a really great topic and I think he did a great job. Too bad we didn't have more time because I would have loved for him to have spent more time on each bullet point. We then arrived back at the dock and we all headed to The Red Loin Hotel to the dance! Yes we do that at a Christian School (sometimes). We got lessons for West Coast Swing and Salsa. It was fun and funny to watch the boys try to pick it up. After the dancing started to die down a few of us headed over to Matt's and watched a movie. I didn't get home that night till about 3:30 in the am. It was super fun and I totally had a blast!!!
Playing Ping Pong :).
