The serve was invented so that the net could play. ~Bill Cosby

I'm not good at it, but I think I love it.

Tennis.

It makes me feel sporty and ridiculous all at the same time.

Old pic, same poor form.

started playing a bit last Fall when both kids were in school full time. It was our first bit of real chunks of time without them. Good-bye Kindy, Hello 6 hours in a row of freedom! It couldn't have come soon enough :p

C'mon...you all know I love my kids...but really - elementary school comes along at about just the right time!

Since today was in the 70s and beautiful, when the kids were done with school, we hit the court. Jack was more interested in his new Lego magazine, but wee girl was very into it!

Like I need one more thing to add to my plate, but...lessons? I'm thinking maybe.

DO YOU PLAY?

I took lessons for 3 years. I still don't have a great serve, but I loved it. Definitely take lessons:)

I tried and failed. Thinking of it, I tried and failed at pretty much every sport that includes me and a ball that needs to be touched in any combination. For the rest of the earth's population though, sports are a pretty fun thing to do! I say go for the lessons if you like it! :-)

I played in high school and a year in college, but I was really never any good, but I always loved it! I never had lessons and have actually thought about taking them now to pick it up again, but there's just no time. Just have fun!

I am exceptionally terrible at any sport involving a net -- tennis, volley ball, ping pong ...

One time I played it and that one day I felt pretty darn good! That was a couple of decades ago, and just that one day. But for that one day I was a rock star tennis player!

Oooooo I suck SO BAD at tennis. I can't find the happy medium between the net and lobbing it over the fence and completely off the court. I keep trying to hit it like a baseball!

Haha! Tennis is the devil to me. I'm glad your family had a good time. Your kiddies are so cute!

I haven't played in years but still have racquets - keep trying to get someone out there with me but no luck so far!

Cute pictures of your daughter swinging! I've never played tennis for real, but I used to enjoy hitting the ball back and forth across the net with a friend.

Too many balls flying at my face. :) hahahah

I love to "play" if you can call it that. It's pretty sad, but whatever. I'm having fun. Until my teenagers try to kill me with the ball. :)

Oh GRRRRRRRRRR...Last time I played tennis was 15 years ago.
With the hubs.
Never again.
I threw my racket in anger across the court and it broke.
I never bought a new one.
Or cared too.;)
(Can you say a "bad sport"...as in ~explaining an attitude?:))

Oh my goodness! I LOVE tennis!! There are no courts here- just one blacktop court with a sagging net...:p Lessons help.
