Technology is absolutely amazing to me sometimes. It is crazy that I am able to call everyone at home for free, whenever I want, as long as I have wifi. I don’t have astronomical charges for international calls!
Right now, my parents are on a Qantas airplane to arrive in Melbourne tomorrow morning, and I am able to track their flight path online. Incredible!!
Seriously, how cool is that? They’re just past Hawaii, and getting closer and closer to seeing me by the minute. I could not be more excited to have them visit! I’m pretty sure that this is the first time that both my brother and my mom have left the North American continent (and the first time out of the US minus Mexico)!
It will be fun to do all of the tourist type activities that I was able to do with Ben all over again with my family. I just love that the people that I love are able to experience my awesome Australian life with me!
We won our game tonight by a ton, as usual. However, we ran different defensive techniques during all four quarters, and the third quarter where we played a center front and perimeter press was the only one that felt like we were playing like a team. It’s amazing how well we work together when we don’t have to think about running a more complex defense than a press. 🙂
Alicia’s Aussie Word of the Day: rooted. Meaning to be incredibly tired, exhausted. Usage: After playing three games, U16, U18, and SL1, our players are totally rooted.
