Marshall and I both played tennis in high school. He was actually very good and played singles. I was down lower on the roster and usually ended up playing mixed doubles, but we both really liked it. Chandler got a racket last year and loves to go play. He's actually quite decent at hitting the ball and is trying to serve. Funny watching a 5 year old try to serve. He's really patient with it.
Rowan loves chasing the balls back and forth and was quite content to try to hit and push balls around with an extra racket we have the entire time. Looking at these two little boys playing tennis, it reminded me of a time Marshall and I went to play right before I had Chandler. I was 39 weeks and trying to get myself to go into labor, so we went to play tennis. I got really into the game, forgetting that I was 60 lbs heavier with a gigantic belly and tried to slam a ball down. Needless to say it HURT when I came down. I almost peed my pants and had some yucky pelvic pain that night. Chan didn't care. It didn't put me into labor. Anyways, tennis is fun for our family to go play and will be something we can enjoy for years to come.
