Tennis

3

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!

  2. Love this! Isabella is a golfer and has played for many years. Ray loves golf and plays as often as he can. I love when the two of them leave early on a Sunday to spend the morning playing golf.
