It's been raining a lot in St. Louis these past two days. Not the greatest of mood setters. One bit of sunshine, though came here Sunday morning, when my brother Brian and his daughter Rowan arrived from New York on a visit with my parents and I. This is the first time I have seen my niece in person, and she's a real good little girl. They'll head back to New York on Thursday, but we'll have some time together in the meantime.
Last week saw some soccer games I refereed last weekend, and some college volleyball Thursday night. After attending a networking event in west St. Louis, I drove to Washington University to see the host Bears play Webster University in the first round of the NCAA Division III women's volleyball tournament. Wash. U. beat Webster 3 sets to 1 to advance, but it was sure nice to see the Gorloks in post-season play. It was not something I could see when I was Webster's sports information coordinator 20 years ago.
I have IPMS Gateway meeting tonight, and tomorrow night is the futsal referee recertification clinic.
