All this was inevitable:
- that Rebecca beg to join a tennis summer course, and be allowed to do it (didn't I already give in when we were in the US?).
- that I decide to handmake a floral racket cover, double lined, zippered, and with straps to be worn on the shoulders, a project that I almost gave up on several times, and just barely managed to finish minutes before we had to leave for the tennis club. (I got many things wrong, and spent most of the time un-stitching what I'd just sewed, but all was forgotten and forgiven when I saw how proudly she marched up behind her brothers, wearing her very own tennis racket).
- that we become a true tennis family: a tennis father, three tennis children, and a dedicated chauffer and cheer leader (yours truly).
Yes, it was all inevitable.
