We play tennis. A lot.
We have the high school tennis courts nearby pretty much all to our selves. We are there after dinner a few times during the week.
My son is really good.
My oldest daughter likes tennis skirts and all the fashion possibilities in this sport. This is the only time she will get a hold of a ball.
My youngest is always the first one ready with racket in tow and everything. Once there, we use more as a ball girl.
Amor played in high school and college. He is awesome and has such a sexy style. I can’t get enough of his serve. As far as me, tennis is the only sport I ever played. I’m not good at it though and it frustrates me. I remember, too, being told when I was young that my brother was better than me. That did it for me. I stopped pursuing it. I learned at the time the importance of praise and knowing the effective ways of advising others of their mistakes.
Fall is here, we probably have, as a family, a couple more weeks of tennis. I’m sad about that. The kids will continue playing indoors with their Rec. center league.
I should be in NYC at the US Open right now
Andy Roddick is retiring. He is only 30. You know now what I will be doing tonight: Glued to the TV as he plays Del Portro in the round of 16. This well may be his last game. I will surely miss seeing him play . And wonder when there will be another American coming into the scene. Please don’t tell me I’ll have to wait that long until my son goes pro...
Do you play any sports as a family?
