 you hustle...
when it's time to run...
to hit a ball
to pick them up
(you won ball pick up today!!!)
to avoid being hit by your instructors when you play "star wars"
to huddle for instruction!

you loved...
early morning on the court
your teachers
learning to hit
gathering the most balls

it has been a struggle to find your favorite sport
soccer...felt intimidating
gymnastics...painful LOVE!

p.s.  i loved the way you were excited to set your alarm clock on Thursday nights this summer.  i loved the smile i found on your face when i picked you up after your lesson.  i loved to see your enthusiasm as you played.  i loved that you wanted to practice when we visited the pool.  i loved that your instructors played fun creative games to teach you effective technique.  i love that you look up to them.  i love tennis outfits!  do you!?  :)
