By this time of year, life really becomes all about water polo around here. In addition to the daily practices and weekly or sometimes bi-weekly games, we now have tournaments for, I think, 4 weekends in a row. The weather couldn't have been better for the JV tournament this weekend. Playing outside could have been a miserable experience, but it was perfect.
Tournaments are generally 2, or sometimes 3, days long, with the teams playing multiple games over those days. Sometimes it's pretty exhausting for the players. And since both the girls and boys teams play, it means Shawn is gone all day during the tournaments, too. Good thing we love water polo as much as we do.

It's fun to see Jonas be aggressive.
He has lost all fear of going up against bigger, stronger players...
...because he knows he can just put them under water, I guess.
All the players were busy soaking up the sun while they weren't in the water.
More of Jonas' "I'll just put him under water to get the ball" stuff.
I'm pretty sure someone is under the water here...
Love this picture because of the perfect angle of the ball -
it looks like it sprouted legs and ran away.
