Tennis

#1 came home from school a few weeks back saying that he LOVED tennis. He came home from a friend's house and said he LOVES tennis and we should all play.

#2 thought that sounded cool also.

I was on the tennis team in high school. I wasn't very good, but it was a way to stay in shape for softball. So, I'm pretty jazzed about them wanting to play tennis.

We went out and bought cheap-o rackets and a couple cans of balls (huh, huh) and headed to the courts over at ICC near our house.

We had fun. Er, I had fun. The boys were frustrated because they couldn't play nearly as well as they hoped. And they fought over whose turn it was to hit the ball. And who was going to have to get the ball that flew over the fence. And who stood where.

So, I am hoping that our tennis playing will improve and that the boys will be patient and practice. Although if they are anything like me, they won't want to because they are too competitive and want to do everything right THE FIRST TIME.

Meanwhile, my hinder is pretty sore and I feel like I got a decent workout! Woo-Hoo!

If you want to motivate your boys to participate in tennis just show them what tennis babes are like!
