Just call me Steffi...

Caleb and I recently decided to start playing tennis, mainly as a way to stay in shape because Caleb is most decidedly NOT a gym rat. I am perfectly content to run in place while catching Seinfeld re-runs, but Caleb needs to be moving, actively engaged.....I can't imagine why.

We bought cheap rackets at Target along with equally cheap tennis balls. We had no idea we'd end up going EVERY SINGLE DAY for two weeks straight. And counting. We've both really enjoyed getting outside and having something fun to do together besides molding ourselves into the couch. Until then I'd never actually held a tennis racket with the intent to play tennis. The closest I'd come was badminton, and those habits seem to die hard....for me at least. Caleb is one of THOSE, the kind of people who effortlessly master a sport on their first try. I watched him get up and ride a wake board the first time, turning tricks after just a few rides. I also watched him get up on the air chair on his first try, which really, is a feat in and of itself. Just trust me on that one.

Where was I? Tennis...yes...anyway, he spent a lot of time running after the ball I'd hit, three courts over. He still does, but thankfully less frequently. Except of course, when I attempt my backhand. Those balls usually end up either 30 feet behind me or narrowly missing the garbage can.

Here I am, attempting to serve. Not quite sure where the racket is in this shot...I'm sure it's somewhere....

Here, I decide to use my racket.

I have no idea what my other arm is doing, I believe it had a purpose though. It must have...

This? This is what I call......alright, I have no clue. At least my arm has somewhat been subdued...


Alright. That's enough. This isn't even funny anymore. Do you see my foot? That's sick. I do love my pensive face though.....very ethereal....

Here's Cabe, NOT showing off. At all.

Do you see those trees?! This tennis court happens to be in our new favorite little neighborhood, and if we had $2 million dollars lying around we'd cash it in for a two bedroom just a few streets down.....and yes, I said two million...and a two bedroom....it hurts my heart....
