Tennis Partners

This is what my week looked like:

I sent Simon to camp at the Louisville Tennis Club, not to be confused with the Louisville Tennis Center, with hisĀ  friend Caroline. Camp was 9-12 and Caroline’s parents both work full time, so that meant we also had play-dates every day all week.

It was a great week, and I especially enjoyed watching them find ways to integrate typical boys’ and girls’ play. Like when the hot wheels racing down Simon’s ramp suddenly became a family with the Mommy and Daddy car cheering on the baby cars. Or when they played house, with the variation that one member was getting violently ill at all times. Or when they drew mermaids in bubbles that had to escape from super bad guys. Even now a game of house is going on, with brother and sister saying goodbye to each other because one is moving to the Arctic and the other to the Antarctic.

I’ll have more to say/write later on. For now, I just wanted to post this cute pic of the kids on their last day. Also? Simon’s volley is awesome and his aim is spectacular. I can say that now because it’s what his coach wrote on his evaluation form.
