A Win!





Brady won his first USTA Junior Tennis match on Saturday!






To say he was excited would be a huge understatement!
He was bursting at the seams....but would not allow us to celebrate until we got outside and into our van!
He played an 8 game pro set...which means the first player to win 8 games wins. 
Brady won 9-7 (you have to win by 2).
The match lasted almost an hour and a half.
Eric and I were on the edge of our seats the entire match!
We wanted to jump up and down afterwards...we were so happy for him!
But, tennis is weird like that...so we followed Brady's lead and went
all out crazy once were were out of the complex!


We told Brady we were taking Sunday off from tennis...
no clinic or court time at the tennis club....
no going to the outdoor courts....
we need a break and plus, it's cold out there!




Sunday night....I went out to tell Brady it was bath and bedtime.
You can't really tell because my flash went off...but it's dark outside.
That kid just never gets tired of tennis.

I love Brady! I was telling my friend about his tennis obsession -- seriously, I think it's the coolest (and cutest) thing!

P.S., I love the name Brady...our last name starts with BR, so it wasn't an option :(

wow. . .seriously, Kerri, David and I have commented over the years that our kids just aren't driven in anything like that. . .what a great trait, of course it might need a little guidance:) (like all traits there is good and bad) I like that you are trying to help him make time in his life for other things and take a break!
