It is a ten-ish-hour drive to San Diego. That is a long drive, but my companions were great company, the music was energizing, and the hours flew by.
University of San Diego was our destination, and NITOC was our purpose for the week.
We worked hard, both at the tournament and at the hotel late at night. It was exhausting in a wonderful way.
When announcements are made it feels all about winning and losing. We love winning, but there is so much more to it. The camaraderie is priceless. We are a team, and it is a beautiful thing.
Even the siblings are there in the early morning, ready to hear of their siblings wins and losses.
The ocean was waiting for us when we were done. Oh! I LOVE the beach. San Diego is gorgeous.
