Ready, Set, Match

Good shot + perfect form = a perfect storm.
These are all words that can be used to describe my sister-in-law's performance at the Canyon Crest Semi-Finals Tennis Tournament. (She's the same sis-in-law that got me backstage at the Oscars.)

Tera's been playing for years, but this was her first foray advancing to the semi's, so a bunch of us went down to cheer her on. We had to do it very quietly on the sidelines. (Though I had to remind Sarge because he was jabbering like he was at home in front of the TeeVee.)

She is a sensational player, and I got a kick out of watching someone I actually know actually win, thanks to her ace serve and her awesome backhand. She put so much backspin on the ball, it made me dizzy and I fell. . . back in love with the game!

It was fantastic just watching her. I love my family, and you know what they say: Love is nothing in tennis, but in life, it's everything.

Thanks, Tera, for helping a sister out with Number 129 on her Bucket List!
