Weekend Water Polo
This weekend I took the boy with me and we went down to Ventura to play with my club in a Master's Water Polo tournament. It was a really fun tournament. My friends Rick and Bryan both took their sons as well. We had two games on Saturday and played very well. We beat two other 40+ year old teams and then faced some younger guys on Sunday. We actually did pretty well against the 20 year old's losing each game by 2 goals. Saturday night was the best. All of the visiting teams stayed in 8 campsites on the same circle at McGrath State Beach. During the day we killed each other in the pool and that night shared a beer, played some volleyball and got to know the other athletes around the campfire. We even played hide and go seek with our sons. The next morning we held a short church service with some of our team and the Fresno Pacific water polo team. One guy brought a guitar and we sang a few songs, heard a short passage from Psalms then had one of the Pacific students prayed for us. Very cool weekend!
