a new tennis player
So as the soccer season wrapped up (back here), Claire, probably my most begging-to-be-in-every-sport-child, started tennis.
So far she seems to be pretty pleased with that little fact.
Her form is top notch, (which apparently includes the tongue-power I discovered in soccer season :)
Ha ha...it actually makes me realize how far Elle has come!
It doesn't hurt that she takes lessons with one of her best friends who transferred to another school last year.
They are in heaven to be reunited.
Now if they could just concentrate on what they are learning rather than being so giddy to be together!
Love this shot:
Everyone is pretty amazed about where that sucker landed:
(Something is telling me it was not somewhere on the court.)
Elle's "clinic" starts right after Claire's done.
And she hits away at that ball as Claire watches in awe.
Now if we can just keep Claire going...
We have two strikes against us because Max and Grace both tried and decided it wasn't for them.
C'mon Claire, let's stick with this one!
I love tennis.
And I don't mind living out my tennis dreams through my children :)
