Abby’s Water Polo team won big this evening 20 – 4. The other team wasn’t a match for the Oviedo. I knew something was up when they didn’t have that many players on their team. The Oviedo team was swimming circles around them and stealing the ball with ease.
It was a tough home loss tonight against rival Hagerty High this evening. It was close during the first half, but they ended up letting the score get away from them in the last quarter with a final score 8-1. Abby didn’t play much, but when she did she was matched up against one of Hagerty’s biggest players. Abby had a shot on goal, but missed just right of the goal.
For the second year, Izzy participated in the band Solo & Ensemble competition. She played her flute with a piano accompaniment in front of a judge this afternoon. The judge worked with her on her timing a bit, but said she had great tone and a lot of potential. Her final score was the top rating: Superior.
The Oviedo Water Polo Team was victorious over West Orange High School in a come back win 8-6 this evening. Abby even scored the first goal of the game. She lobbed it right over the goalie’s head. It was a tight game tied most of the second half and Oviedo didn’t go on top until the last two minutes of the game. Abby played the whole game since her coach was too afraid to sub anyone out with it being so close.
The Oviedo High School Water Polo team was dealt another loss by Lake Mary High school 13-6. Abby set expectations before the game saying that they were a really tough team.
It was a cold Wednesday evening for the first home game of the season. Abby played most of the game, but when the other team started to pull away, other girls were substituted in so that they got some playing time. They played well, but they ended up losing 8 to 5 to Boone High School.
Yesterday and today we celebrated Emily’s 15th birthday. Last night we went to eat pizza at Ragazzi’s in College Park. What we think is the best pizza in Orlando. Then we spent the evening over at Dave & Busters playing games. Between the five of us we earned enough tickets for Emily to get some nice headphones. At least we thought they were nice until we looked them up on Amazon and found out they were worth around $20.
Today we went out for breakfast and finished it off opening presents and having some cake at home. I can’t believe Emily is already 15 years old.
