…so I’m just sharing snippets when I can because I want to hold on to things and feelings before they slip away. Elle and Max tried out for high school tennis and volleyball respectively. Needless to say, our quote to memorize has been this: Elle was so nervous. She said she was shaking like a leaf in the first few tournaments for tryouts. I’m so proud of her because she made the Varsity team. Go Elle! Her first tournament is this afternoon and I can’t wait. I love watching tennis with all my heart. Max was mad on this day because he was having a bad hair day after practice. I’m sure that’s the reason why he’s grimacing. It surely couldn’t be that he’s bugged at his mother for taking too many pictures. 🙂 This kid has been practicing his little guts out because he made “swing” which means he practices with Varsity and plays JV. The best of both worlds as far as we’re concerned. He is loving every second of it but man alive, he’s one busy boy practicing for four plus hours after school every day and then staying up to finish homework and then doing it all over again the next day. We’re all so excited for his first game tomorrow. I am in love with high school sports. I’m namely in love with two of their tallest players:) Have I mentioned how much I love teenagers? Yes, they’re grumpy and don’t listen and sullen at times, but those big smiles and lanky hugs make it all worth it a hundred times over.
