Getting to Twenty

Remember the last time I blogged and said that we weren't going to be able to complete our assignment for the day? Well... we accomplished it and then had a few difficulties in trying to do all 4 of the things we needed to do this weekend - but we're back on track and will be going full swing from here on out. The weekend was filled with travels (Caitlin to Bear Lake and me to North Carolina, which I'll talk about later) and since we were apart we couldn't do our countdown. But enough about our slacking, let's talk about our amazing goal of twenty!

Like I said previously, Caitlin is learning to play tennis and as with everyone learning to play tennis, she is still working on accuracy, and although I've played for a while, I'm not the best at this either. So to help us work on this element of the game I set a goal a few weeks back that we wouldn't leave the tennis court until we got twenty hits back and forth. Well... after it got so dark we couldn't see the ball anymore we finally left for the night - completely defeated. 

We attempted a few other times but could not get to that 20 mark. We got 19 a few times, but 20 seemed so elusive. But finally we made it! I don't know if it was because it was on our countdown or the fact that we were in a hurry while we played (it was before Caitlin took me to the airport) but we managed to not only hit twenty back and forth, but we made it all the way to 40! 

40!!!!!

That's right, we're pretty much tennis pros. So as a treat we went and grabbed an ice cream cone  a well deserved ice cream cone!

Since we didn't take any pictures while we were playing we snapped a few of us with our rackets after our victory. 

Tonight we'll be hiking the Y here in Provo. We're also working on catching up on the few we slacked on. Get excited for some double posts coming soon!
