Oh my goodness! Abigail was so adorable at her very first tennis lesson. We signed her up for some lessons this summer since she's old enough for the "tiny tots" class. She looked (and was) so little on the court! She was the only one and we were thrilled for her that her first lesson was one on one with a wonderful teacher. Abigail didn't hesitate at all! All morning long she kept telling me "mommy, I'm going to kick that ball so hard!" "Abigail, that's soccer, you're going to play tennis today...."
I dressed her in clothes that I had. Imagine that this 4 year old was wearing a tennis skirt that I bought for Anna years ago size 12-18 mths?! Tiny girl!
Here she is right before her lesson...
Anna was so happy and excited for her little sister.
Tiny little girl on the court for the first time
A real first time hit! A bit blurry but I have to include a real hit!
Learning from her "coach"
She was beaming when she came off the court. "I loved tennis mommy! Thank you for taking me" (with all the enthusiasm she could have)
It was so hot that afternoon. Since tennis is at our pool I took her right in to cool off after. In the dressing room she couldn't stop thanking me for taking her. She loved the attention and doing something that her big sister does
Anna's turn. Even though she had lessons last summer she was hesitant to go on the court.
Her lesson was an hour. So while I took Abigail swimming (and watched her from the pool) Scott stood by the court.
Scott and I had so much fun watching our girls experience a sport that is so much a part of our lives. Even though I could never learn Scott is a great player, and we both want the girls to love a lifelong sport.
