Guest post of the week by Nestor Nielsen
My little sister and I have been looking for a way to stay in touch with each other, because we both get so busy between work and taking care of the kids that we don’t have time to go out for coffee anymore. So this summer, we decided to join a tennis league together. It’s been so much fun, and we’ve even both been getting in better shape!
On the days we have practice, I have my niece come over to watch the kids. I pack a light lunch for myself along with some water bottles, set the ADT home security alarm, and head off to the courts. Once I get there, my sister and I spend some time stretching and warming up before the rest of our league members arrive. Then, we spend an hour or an hour and a half practicing, playing games with one another, and working to improve our skills.
Once practice is over, my sister and I will then sometimes steal a bit of time to run errands together, either going to the grocery store, the bank, or sometimes even to grab coffee or ice cream. It’s been such a great experience that I know we’ll remember forever, and it’s given us a wonderful opportunity to spend time together while doing something that we both love and that’s good for us!
