Scott started playing tennis in high school. I ran spring track and field. I was fast on those long distance races and I only did it because I was falling for that cute boy on the high school tennis courts that just happened to be near the track lanes. Man, that was a lot of running just to hope he'd look up and notice me... or maybe I could time up leaving the track as he left the courts. (the good old days... sigh)
Anna is a great tennis player like her daddy. And she's been playing a lot this summer.
I bribed her to wear the cute tennis dress with an omelet since she's more comfortable in shorts and a tee. But aren't the clothes in tennis the best and worth playing anyway? And I got to try out my new lens (70-200)
Abigail and I hang out at the shady picnic table making things.
Scott got super good and played number one in college. I never, hardly ever, missed a match!
I tried to learn tennis before we were married. I even took lessons but it just wasn't my thing. I prefer the sneakers and the pavement. (and honestly the alone part)
But I always wanted Anna to love tennis like her daddy so that they could play together.
Scott still plays almost daily year round at the crack of 5:15... but long gone are my days swooning over him on the courts. I have omelets to make for little girls! But something tells me I'll have plenty of years watching someone I love playing tennis!
