The Tennis Pro

Our local pool and racquet club offers summer tennis lessons. We've taken advantage of these lessons for the last several years and the kids have really enjoyed it. Last summer I posted sweet pics of Special K taking lessons in futility. She decided not to take lessons this summer. If you've ever seen her on her bike or scooter, you'd realize tennis is not the sport for her. It's a bit too mild. She is more of an X-games athlete, if you know what I mean.

This summer, Lil' Wingnut is finally old enough to take lessons. He's the lone little boy in a small class of little girls. Thats ok, he's a ladies man and he's really enjoying himself. The coach is an amazing young man, in his second year of college. He is incredibly wonderful with children and they all just love him. I think he's really enjoying having our Lil' guy in class. First of all, the kid is super coordinated and stepped right up to the net and began hitting balls immediately. Secondly, our Lil' man has a sense of humor. He cracks jokes and giggles wildly over hitting the coaches with his shots. Thirdly, Lil' Wingnut loves the ladies, and the coach has gotten a real kick out of the moves the boy has been putting on his 4 and 5 year old classmates; batting his eyes, smiling coyly, helping them collect balls on the court, telling them how awesome they are doing, etc. Good grief.

Hey Mau,

It does his uncle proud to see Lil Wingster showing his prowess both on the court and with the ladies!!! Those big brown eyes and cat-like reflexes combined together has created an irresistable force. Any good and loving parent would try to package all of that "game" to create a commerical dynasty that would rival Michael Jordan in his hayday. Just think of the little guy on TV sporting Gatorade, legos, underroos, Kraft Mac N Cheese and various hair gel products. That would easily pay for his and all his siblings college and would provide a handsome retirement for his favorite Uncle...Josh could use the cash. Before you know it he will be the leading man in quality movies that deal with a handsome high profile 4 year old tennis player trying to find his purpose in the difficult playground world. By 6 he will have his third book ready to publish! Ok...maybe a pipe dream!!! Your Uncle is proud of you Lil Wingster and remember this advice... "Keep your raquet straight and true and your lips to yourself!"

Love Ya Mau
