Homeschool Volleyball

The school here in Nondalton didn't have high school age kids that wanted to play volleyball. It turned out to be a good thing for us as a family because we decided to make our own team. We reserved a time at the gym and the whole family plus a few other kids get together and play. Sometimes either Paul or I don't make it, but one or both of us usually can and we have a great time.
Sarah is so cute doing her stretching exercises. You can see her below next to me as she tries to imitate everything we do.
The little boys and Sarah amuse themselves with all the cool gym equipment they can find while Paul or I are teaching the older kids the basics of volleyball.

For our older kids, one of the funnest things about playing volleyball with the school was getting to fly to the two tournaments they had for the district teams. They enjoyed spending time with their friends from other villages. So, Paul took Abigail, Deborah and Quentin (they play 3 man volleyball here) to Port Alsworth for a scrimmage game. Then Paul flew them to Kokanok to watch the district tournament. The lake froze over thick enough for Paul to land on the lake to load the kids up for the flight.
