Street Tennis with Kaden

Hpim0984Every day for the last week Kaden has been asking me to play tennis on the street. Since we've gotten the Wii and played tennis together on it, Kaden's become very skilled at the game. Last week, we started to play on our street together. We've been playing every day this week. Not only every day, but for atleast 30-60 minutes each time. Kaden's become very skilled, very quickly at tennis - both forehand and backhand over the course of just a week. Kaden just likes to play. He gets into a rhythm and just loves it. He loves it so much that he got his first blister on his thumb!

Hpim0986_2In the past, I tried taking Kaden and Alex on the tennis court. That was fun, but it is so much more effort to get out there. Why not just play on the street. It's fun and you can still hit back and forth. I can imagine that it will be fun to play on a real court again when he's ready. He'll be surprised how good he's become.

I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Kaden, if you read this one day, your dad has really loved playing tennis with you.
