Sam and Savannah are in full swing with team practices after school. Savannah's first tennis match is tomorrow. She may or not play - this is her first week participating in practice after her sprained ankle - but this is only the beginning of a full 6 weeks of matches so I'm sure she'll get her turn. Sam's first cross country meet is next Tuesday. He's pretty nervous about it, but after hearing about his 5 and 6 mile runs in the muggy heat complete with uphill sprints, I'd say a nice 3.1 mile race sounds pretty tame.
Participation in sports is new territory for us and the time commitment is pretty steep, but they like being part of a team and are anxious to put their practice to the test.
